Review of the Korean Society of Interventional Radiology and European Thyroid Association guidelines regarding the role of radiofrequency ablation for benign and malignant thyroid tumors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

While radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for the treatment of symptomatic thyroid nodules has been gaining more widespread adoption in the United States, there is limited societal guidance for its role, and safe adoption. As many of the first adopters of thyroid nodule RFA developed their practices, they looked to the Korean Society of Interventional Radiology (KSIR), and European Thyroid Association (ETA) guidelines as a framework. Currently, efforts are underway from the American Thyroid Association to create updated guidelines for US providers. International consensus guidelines are also underway. Until these guidelines are available, a thorough understanding of the current available guidelines is key for interventionalists building a thyroid nodule RFA program.
