The advanced workshop focuses on the use of ultrasound for examination of the cervical lymph nodes and parathyroid adenomas. More recent advances in the diagnosis of thyroid nodules will be reviewed. Ultrasound findings will be demonstrated through real-time imaging of patient volunteers, followed by a hands-on session where participants will be guided through advanced ultrasound techniques. The registration fee includes a buffet dinner.

PREREQUISITE: The advanced workshop is for physicians already performing thyroid ultrasound in their practice, or those who have participated in the Introductory Hands-on Thyroid Ultrasound Workshop at ENDO 2016 or in a previous year.
