By staff writers

October 25, 2021 -- France's High Authority for Health and the National Professional Council for Radiology and Medical Imaging (G4) has released recommendations on thyroid ultrasound and ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration.

Creation of the guidance was overseen by Dr. Valérie Lindecker of Caisse Nationale d'Assurance Maladie (CNAM) in Paris and Dr. Jean Tramalloni of Radiologie Paris Ouest.
