US-guided thermal ablations of benign thyroid nodules

As more and more evidence emerges in favour of its efficacy, the demand for thyroid thermal ablation of benign thyroid nodules has increased in recent years. In spite of this, very few centres in Europe currently provide such treatments. To help ensure that physicians are able to educate themselves on this topic, CIRSE and ETA have joined forces and organised the very first webinar focusing on thyroid thermal ablation, which will be held in May 2021.

Physicians taking part in this webinar, put together by Dr. Giovanni Mauri and Prof. Laszlo Hegedüs, will learn about current indications for treatment, different methods of thyroid ablation including that of laser and radiofrequency, and gain insight into the pertinent literature on this topic. Also included in the webinar: two case presentations showing how to manage laser and radiofrequency ablation.

This webinar is brought to you in collaboration with the European Thyroid Association.
