Brief Summary:

The purpose of the study is to check if the new CZT system has an advantage in detection of small osseous processes, thyroid adenomas, parathyroid adenomas and detection of sentinel node, in comparison with the techniques in use.

Participants: 100 subjects male and female that come to the institute of nuclear medicine for routine screening examinations.

The CZT screening takes 10 minutes and does not require any extra intervention to the routine screening.
