AACE/ACE Principles of Endocrine Neck Sonography Course, May 1-2, 2017, Austin, TX
Whereas ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid and parathyroid disorders encompasses new knowledge and technology that was not available in most formal training programs for endocrinologists, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists has undertaken responsibility of training and certifying endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, otolaryngologists / head and neck surgeons, pathologists and radiologists in these new procedures.
The target audience for this course is clinical endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons, ENT / head and neck surgeons, pathologists and radiologists and their physician extenders.
Upon completion of this course, one will understand the indications and limitations of thyroid ultrasound and how it integrates with other thyroid tests (FNAB, and Tg) to improve the diagnosis and management of thyroid disease. "Hands-on" ultrasound and ultrasound guided FNA biopsy will be demonstrated and practiced by the attendees using phantoms.
