Near Infrared Autofluorescence Imaging for Identifying Parathyroid Glands during Parathyroidectomy

This trial investigates how well near infrared autofluorescence imaging works in identifying parathyroid glands during surgery to remove one or more parathyroid glands (parathyroidectomy). The parathyroid gland is an important organ in the neck that regulates calcium levels in the body. Thus, it is essential for a surgeon to correctly identify this organ when performing parathyroid surgeries. By assisting the surgeon in correctly identifying a diseased parathyroid gland, the 'PTeye' near infrared autofluorescence imaging device may improve the quality of the operation performed on the patient. This trial may determine if the PTeye truly benefits a patient undergoing surgery for parathyroid disease or not.
