The investigators hypothesize that positron emission tomography with fluorocholline (F18-choline PET) will reduce the proportion of unnecessary invasive surgery decisions and that the higher cost of positron emission tomography versus MIBI scintigraphy (Tc99m-sestaMIBI ) will be offset by lower cost in terms of type. surgery performed wisely and complications.
