Dos And Don'ts Of Thyroid Nodules
Thyroid nodules are very common and many are incidentalomas. Most are non- functioning and the vast majority are benign. This talk will outline the approach to examination and investigation of nodules and will describe the new system of reporting of ultrasound (TIRADS). An introduction to the Bethesda system of reporting fine needle aspirates will also be described.
