ACR 2016 The Crossroads of Radiology


Update on Thyroid Nodules and Other Cervical Pathology: Heading Towards Consensus


May 18, 2016 10:00am ‐ May 18, 2016 12:00pm

Description

The purpose of this session is to provide updates on initiatives to standardize descriptions of thyroid nodules and to discuss the proper terminology for thyroid nodules based on the new ACR TI-RADS lexicons. The American Thyroid Association (ATA) has updated its recommendation on management of thyroid nodules and has new guidelines regarding FNA of thyroid nodules. The course will also cover US technique and criteria for screening patients for metastatic lymphadenopathy following thyroidectomy. Lastly, US evaluation of the salivary glands will also be discussed, a topic much less familiar to many sonographers. Developed in conjunction with the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explain the use the new TI-RADS lexicon in practice
  2. Manage thyroid nodules according to new ATA guidelines
  3. Define which thyroid nodules should undergo FNA
  4. Identify how to screen and report findings for patients with malignant cervical lymphadenopathy.
  5. Evaluate ultrasound findings of pathology in the salivary (including the parotid) glands
