American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Session Code: SC03
Title: Thyroid, Parathyroid, and Neck Ultrasound
Date and Time of Session: Sunday, October 22: 8:15 am - 5:30 pm
Description: The objective of this course is to introduce the practicing surgeon to office based ultrasound examination of the thyroid, parathyroid, and neck for commonly encountered diseases. The distinction of normal from malignant lymphadenopathy is emphasized with a demonstration of the comprehensive examination of lymph node basins in cervical levels I-VI. The technique of ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) of thyroid nodules and lymph nodes are addressed in didactic lecture format. In addition, hands-on skill sessions allow the surgeon to develop techniques to perform diagnostic neck ultrasound and ultrasound guided FNAB. The use of standardized patients allows supervised hands on experience with transverse and longitudinal scanning methods. The techniques of FNAB of lesions will be performed using phantom models. Attendees will be instructed in the practical detail and hurdles in developing office based ultrasound.
