First Master’s course in thyroid RFA given in Los Angeles on the 17 th March 2018.
The attendance by endocrinologists was very exciting. Many want to add ablation procedures in there practices. 20% already do ethanol ablation for cysts.
As incentive to further their training those attendees will get a 25% discount on my 3 day Master’s class in thyroid ablation.
The course is designed to give the physician intensive 3 days of practice with RF systems on models that simulate all the methods needed to treat patients.Also more important the tools to continue training back home when they get their first RF system. Gelatin models easily made in an hour and use of neck torsos,blue phantoms and even bovine livers obtained from local butchers are all you need to simulate a real ablation on a patient.
Black food coloring covers the beef in actual model used.
Remove and dissect the beef nodules and see your
progress in ablation
Torso used to practice head position and trans-isthmus entry.
Local injection of the thyroid capsule is all that is needed .
No conscience sedation.
Gelatin model to practice lidocaine injection of the thyroid capsule.
