Tests

How can doctors tell if my child has hyperparathyroidism?

In addition to a complete medical history and physical examination, diagnostic procedures for hyperparathyroidism may include:

  • bone x-rays - a diagnostic test which uses invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones and organs onto film.
  • laboratory tests (to measure calcium, parathyroid hormone, vitamin D and phosphorous levels)
Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
