Title: Thyroid and Parathyroid Ultrasound in Practice: Improving Interpretation, Expanding Application
Date and Time of Session: Tuesday, October 18: 9:00 am - 1:15 pm
Location: Washington DC Convention Center - Room: 103B
Description: Advanced concepts pertaining to the sonographic evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of thyroid and parathyroid disorders. The ACS has for many years provided education and hands-on skills courses in thyroid and parathyroid ultrasonography. A growing number of surgeons have received training in the fundamentals and basic use of ultrasonography in clinical practice. In the interest of continuing education and to help clinicians take their ultrasound skills to a higher level with confidence, the objectives of this course include (1) review of strategies for interpretation of ultrasound images and diagnostic challenges, (2) familiarization with innovations and interventional procedures using ultrasound, (3) and provision of CME credit required for surgeons who wish to apply for ultrasound accreditation. Instruction in pattern recognition and thyroid nodule risk of malignancy assessment, dynamic maneuvers such as laryngeal ultrasound, and real case studies including correlation of ultrasound findings with surgical outcomes will enhance the participants’ practical application of thyroid and parathyroid ultrasonography.
