Video of a minimally invasive radioguided parathyroid surgery. The technique uses intraoperative nuclear mapping - a method that allows virtually all parathyroid operations to be performed through a one inch incision with the least amount of dissection. The surgeon uses a special probe that determines which parathyroid glands are normal, which are bad and where each of these glands are located in the neck allowing the diseased glands to be removed while preventing the removal of normal glands. This is a replay of a live webcast originally aired on 6/14/05 .
