Overview:

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 (FNA) 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. The use of standardized patients allows supervised hands on experience with transverse and longitudinal ultrasound methods. The techniques of FNA of lesions will be performed using phantom models. Attendees will be instructed in the practical detail and hurdles in developing office based ultrasound.
