For over ten years, the Endocrine Society has provided the latest advancements in thyroid imaging with a practical, hands-on approach. The introductory workshop is designed for participants looking to begin using ultrasound in diagnosing thyroid nodules and performing ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspirations. After a series of presentations on the principles of ultrasound, thyroid and neck anatomy, and the practical skills involved, participants move to a hands-on session where faculty will guide them through ultrasound and cytological techniques on simulated nodules.
