Demonstrates how ultrasound is integrated with the history, physical exam, and other thyroid tests (especially fine needle aspiration biopsy) to provide information used to improve patient care
Presents up-to-date applications of clinically useful ultrasound
Only clinical reference tool for this technique
Thyroid Ultrasound and Ultrasound-Guided FNA, Third Edition, is the gold-standard, concise, user friendly resource for all clinicians who use ultrasound in the evaluation and management of thyroid disease and ancillary disease of the neck. Building on the success of the first two editions, this version again emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach and offers all the new information regarding ultrasound and the subtleties one needs to know in the application of this rapidly expanding technique, now viewed as a primary tool for diagnosing and managing thyroid disease.
Some chapters have been combined for concision; some have been expanded; and new chapters have been added to encompass recent techniques such as employing UGFNA acquired material for molecular and genetic markers and using ultrasound guidance for radiofrequency ablation. A separate chapter on pediatric ultrasound and congenital abnormalities has been added as well. Other new chapters focus on the effect ultrasound has had on the surgical management of thyroid and parathyroid disease. Written by authors with extensive hands-on experience who have enthusiastically adapted ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of thyroid and ancillary disease of the neck and who have contributed to the accumulating knowledge in the field as well as being ardent teachers of this knowledge to others, Thyroid Ultrasound and Ultrasound-Guided FNA, Third Edition, is another invaluable addition to the literature and will be of immense interest especially to endocrinologists, surgeons, radiologists, and pathologists.
