The distinction between normal and malignant lymphadenopathy will be emphasized with a demonstration of the comprehensive examination of lymph node basins in cervical levels I-VI. The process of ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (FNA) of thyroid nodules and enlarged lymph nodes will be demonstrated in didactic lecture format. In addition, the hands-on skill sessions allow the surgeon to learn varied techniques of FNA of lesions in phantom models. Patient volunteers will participate in the skill sessions. Credentialing and coding issues will also be discussed.
