International Society of Innovative Technologies for Endocrine Surgery

There is currently no gold standard on how to detect and preserve parathyroid glands and their vascularization during thyroidectomy.

New optical-based techniques, without radiation, have been developed to help detect parathyroid glands (in particular autofluorescence) and confirm their vascularization (in particular ICG angiography). This has opened a new, exciting area of research for surgeons and scientists. Some of these devices are now approved by the FDA to help in “real-time location of parathyroid tissue during procedures such as thyroidectomy or parathyroidectomy.”

In this context, we welcome you to come to Geneva, Switzerland on February 23rd– 24th, 2023 for this 5th International Symposium on Parathyroid Identification and Parathyroid angiography with fluorescence and other techniques. We are eager to gather people interested in this new area of research, so we can learn from each other how these new techniques can help increase the safety of thyroid and parathyroid surgeries.

We look forward to an exciting and friendly exchange of ideas and to help move the field forward.
