What you'll learn

  • Optimize application of intraoperative nerve monitoring in thyroid surgery.

  • Discuss cutting-edge methods to improve nerve visualization during thyroid surgery.

  • Optimally apply parathyroid autofluorescence and vascular assessment technologies to thyroid surgery.

  • Explain techniques for margin assessment in head and neck cancer surgery. 

  • Discuss best practices in patient selection, pre-procedural evaluation, technique, post-procedure monitoring and assessment of efficacy for ultrasound-guided ablation of thyroid nodules. 

Course description

Optimized nerve identification and preservation has been facilitated through advancements in nerve monitoring technology and techniques. Novel methods of tissue differentiation using techniques such as autofluorescence, labeled fluorescence, optical coherence tomography and others may improve ability to identify and characterize nerves, parathyroid tissue and tumor margins, among other applications. Application of minimally invasive ablative therapies is shifting the landscape of treatment for thyroid nodules.

This course is targeted to Specialty Physicians in Endocrinology, Surgery, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine and Otolaryngology.
