Comments: Although the company Theraclion is touting there Echopulse system and all the awards it is still not approved in the USA and after talking to fellow thyroidologists in Europe it has little to offer over present  present radiofrequency RFA
thyroid ablation systems.
1. To expensive
2.Only small nodules can be treated in a reasonable amount of time.
3. There is no indication to treat small nodules if they do not have symptoms or it is a cosmetic problem.
4. Just because there is a nodule present is not an indication for treatment in the USA unless it is a suspect cancer.
5. Head movement by the patient is a problem.Movement causes the need to start over.
