RFA is approved in the USA and clinical trials are on-going.

Learn two basic new methods to save your patients from unnecessary thyroid surgery and add new tools to your practice.

                                   Two Tier System 

  1. Those endocrinologists not doing FNA can begin by training in USGFNA, smear technique, molecular marker collection, On-site Adequacy, needle washout for thyroglobulin PTH, and calcitonin.
  2. Those doing their own USGFNA can train in newer techniques and go on to PEI and RFA classes.
  3. The training for endocrinologists without experience in FNA will need 5 days training course to do both FNA and PEI/RFA training.
  4. Those with experience doing FNA and do 50-100 FNAs a year can come for just the 3 day Ablation course.
  5. PEI/RFA training includes generator 101, electrodes, procedure lectures, hands on practice with bovine liver and gelatin models doing RFA, and PEI.

  13. Important safety techniques such as capsule lidocaine injection, Dextrose microdissection to move danger away from target nodule.
  14. Capsule lidocaine injection.

  18. Take home methods to practice  PEI/RFA at home until you get your own RFA generator.

  20. Remember, we fought over 40 years  to get recognition for endocrinologists to do their own ultrasound,biopsies, and on-site adequacy procedures. We also had approval for thyroid nuclear medicine but few kept their license.
  21. Endocrinologists without the ability to do their own procedures allows radiologists and surgeons to take control of their patients.
  22. Also FNA and PEI/RFA ablation procedures will enhance your bottom line.
