Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Thyroid disease and nodules are exceedingly common, and technology has led the forefront in the recent evaluation, diagnosis, and management of thyroid nodules. Ultrasound has largely been responsible for this wave, but new research and the application of molecular analysis and cytopathology education have streamlined the evaluation of thyroid nodules. Long-term follow-up of thyroid cancer has also allowed clinicians and researchers to accurately predict which patients are best treated conservatively and which are treated more aggressively. While techniques such as radiofrequency ablation have offered some opportunity for nodule management, surgery remains the mainstay of the treatment of thyroid cancer. This may range from simple lobectomy to advanced resection of the laryngeal, esophageal, and tracheal structures with acceptable outcomes. We wish to provide the reader with an institutional overview of current diagnosis and management techniques.

Dr. Alfred A. Simental
