Make plans to join your resident colleagues from across the state on Thursday, November 19th at 12:00 pm for the first webinar in a series of educational webinars that will be brought to you by your Resident & Fellow Section.
For our first Webinar, Dr. Auh Whan Park, associate professor in the Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology in the Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging at the University of Virginia, will explore thyroid nodules and their treatment. Although surgery is curative for thyroid nodules and radioactive iodine therapy is effective for autonomously functioning thyroid nodules (AFTNs), some patients are unsuitable for surgery because of high surgical risk. Other patients refuse these treatments for various reasons. Furthermore, there is a substantial risk of hypothyroidism for radioactive iodine therapy of AFTNs. Dr. Park will discuss efforts made to avoid bad outcomes as well as nonsurgical treatment options. Please make plans to join us!
Can't attend on November 19th? No worries. We're planning to record these sessions and will send out the webinar recording link after the session.
