Parathyroid Identification Technology
Radical neck dissection
A technology that can detect the location of parathyroid tissue in real time during surgical procedures, including during thyroidectomy and parathyroidectomy.
Parathyroid tissue can be difficult to distinguish visually from surrounding tissue during surgery. To preserve healthy tissue during surgical treatment of parathyroid disease, devices are used to assist in the imaging of parathyroid glands. The PTeye uses a laser probe to elicit a fluorescent response from parathyroid tissue without the use of a contrast agent.
