On-location Lectures and Information Sessions
Support to promote understanding of thyroid examinations
We provide on-location lectures to students and information sessions to groups other than students upon request. Using programs and materials tailored to the age groups of the participants, we explain about ultrasonography; thyroid cysts, nodules, and cancer; the purpose of thyroid examinations; and the advantages and disadvantages of receiving thyroid examinations. We also provide support so that they can make their own decisions about whether to have an examination and how to understand examination results.
