Course Description

An important update to the American Thyroid Association Guidelines for Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma has recently been published. Otolaryngologist head and neck surgeons as well as other specialists who manage patients with thyroid nodules need to be aware of these changes.

This symposium has been developed to assist the CSOHNS membership better understand the ATA DTC guidelines.

At the end of this session, participants should be able to apply what they have learned to help them manage patients with thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer.

I am pleased to announce that Dr. Mark Urken, co-director Institute for Head and Neck and Thyroid Cancer, Mount Sinai Beth Israel, New York, will participate in the symposium.
