Ultrasound-guided Radiofrequency Ablation of Benign Thyroid Nodules

featuring special guest-narrated RFA demo

Please join us on Sunday, August 30th, 2020 at 5PM PDT as Stanford University Head & Neck Surgery hosts a FREE virtual event on Ultrasound-Guided Radiofrequency Ablation of Benign Thyroid Nodules

Radiofrequency ablation is revolutionizing the management of thyroid nodules. For patients who may have otherwise elected to delay or forgo surgical treatment, this technology provides a minimally invasive approach that spares normal thyroid tissue and function. As thyroidology evolves, it is critical that providers stay informed of options and expected outcomes.

This webinar is intended for audiences from all disciplines, and will address patient selection, procedural technique, and practice incorporation. Discussion topics include:

  • What is radiofrequency ablation?
  • Indications and patient selection for thyroid RFA
  • Thyroid/neck ultrasonography and RFA-relevant findings
  • The consent process: expected outcomes and potential risks
  • Anesthetic and ablative techniques under ultrasound guidance

Also featuring demonstration performed and narrated by Brazilian RFA trailblazer, Leonardo G. Rangel, MD!
