The Parathyroid Glands
This book is based on the authors’ extensive practical experience in the use of modern radiological methods to diagnose parathyroid diseases and the application of advanced surgical techniques. Detailed attention is devoted to the embryological background to emphasize the significance of diagnostic and surgical peculiarities. Pre- and intraoperative imaging is discussed in depth, with a special focus on localizing techniques. Ultrasound-guided minimally invasive techniques, including percutaneous laser ablation, are fully considered. This up-to-date and richly illustrated book will interest and assist specialists in ultrasound diagnostics, radiologists, endocrinologists, and surgeons.
