ENCU is a professional certification in the field of neck ultrasonography for physicians who perform consultations and diagnostic evaluations for thyroid and parathyroid disorders through both diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (UGFNA). This program is sponsored by AACE, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.
Endocrine Certification in Neck Ultrasound (ECNU) is a professional designation awarded to individuals who meet specified knowledge requirements, measured through a standardized examination and validation of competency process in diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration (UGFNA).
The ENCU certification is a 2 part process. Physicians must pass a Comprehensive Certification Examination (CCE) and also a Validation of Competency Process (VCP). The Validation of Competency Process assesses the physician’s demonstrated competency, activity, and level of skills to interpret and report complete diagnostic ultrasound examinations (either performed by a supervised certified ultrasound technologist or personally by the physician), and to perform and report UGFNA procedures.
Our practice is also accredited in Thyroid and Parathyroid Ultrasound by the AIUM. The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.
