CT upper extremity without contrast (coronal) shows calcification of the soft tissues adjacent to the acromioclavicular joint.
 
Anterior neck and chest SPEC-CT imaging after IV Technetium 99 sestamibi administration shows increased activity of parathyroid glands in addition to normal physiologic activity of the parotid glands, submandibular glands, liver, and myocardium.
