Endocrine Neck Ultrasound Lab of Southern California is the only referral center on the west coast that has both the certification of the physician sonographer by the American College of Endocrinology ACE, and the ultrasound lab certified by the American Institute of Ultrasound Medicine.100 endocrinologists have been certified by ACE, but only 5 have had their ultrasound equipment certified by AIUM. My referral ultrasound center is the only one double certified on the west coast. This allows us see referrals from general endocrinologists,and thyroid surgeons for specific studies. Diagnostic Endocrine neck ultrasound, lymph node mapping before and after cancer surgery, parathyroid localization, USGFNA of nodules,lymph nodes, and parathyroid adenomas. Interventional sonography for Ethanol injection treatment of benign recurrent cysts to replace surgery, and recurrent papillary, medullary cancer lymph nodes after prior neck dissection.
