De-escalate Excessive Imaging 

Just say No 

 

Too Many Modalities and too Much Imaging 

  1. Less is more for low risk cancers.
  2. If the thyroglobulin and initial  endocrine neck Ultrasound post op is negative you can insist of less intensive surveillance imaging.
  3. Get outside opinions before long term planning is done and before you are subjected to endless visits for imaging.
  4. Small volume of local lymph nodes post op can also be followed without watchful waiting instead of more imaging and radiation.
  5. Use of alternative therapy for these low risk cases with a few lymph nodes include ethanol ablation PEI and radiofrequency ablation RFA.
  6. Call me for PEI treatment evaluation for your small number of cancer lymph nodes post surgery or radioiodine.
