Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Otolaryngology Volume 46, Issue 03: Surgeon-Performed Ultrasonography for Thyroid and Parathyroid Diseases.

The goal of this program is to improve surgeon-performed ultrasonography of thyroid and parathyroid glands. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Describe the role of ultrasonography in the practice of the endocrine surgeon.
2. Discuss the basics of ultrasound physics.
3. Assess the advantages and problems with ultrasonography of the parathyroid glands and compare it with sestamibi scan.
4. List indications for ultrasound-guided fine-needle aspiration.
5. Review the concept of specimen inadequacy and weigh evidence on ways to increase specimen adequacy.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
