About this book

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.​

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book provides a detailed review of the use of various imaging modalities for evaluation of parathyroid disease. It provides excellent images, both radiographic and pathological, in order to achieve the goal of educating surgeons on the use of imaging tools. … book nicely meets the objectives with excellent use of examples of different imaging modalities. The book is aimed at surgeons who are already trained in parathyroid operations, and it is appropriate for this audience. … this is a unique book in the field.” (Anuradha R. Bhama, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)
