Minimally invasive approaches used in parathyroid surgery necessitates fine and reliable imaging studies in order to detect the presence of an adenoma. In our department, we have developed a software allowing for the 3D reconstruction of all cervical organs from a simple injected CT-scan. This reconstruction helps to precisely determine the localization of the adenoma in relation to different elements of the cervical area, especially vascular elements. Consequently, the surgical intervention can be simulated in order to select the best approach.
