Incidental Thyroid Nodules

Identify. Track. Impact.

serial surveillance simplified

Thyroid nodules are present in about half of adults over the age of 60. Most are small, asymptomatic, and noncancerous, but they should be evaluated to determine appropriate follow-up.

Eon’s Essential Patient Management (EPM) offers the most powerful solution to identify incidental thyroid nodules from radiology reports, automate screening for those with a family history or genetic risks, and longitudinally track patients according to the American College of Radiology (ACR) guidelines.

The Eon Advantage

Thyroid Solution

Using proprietary data science models, Eon offers the most sophisticated approach to positively capture incidentally identified thyroid abnormalities with >92% accuracy. Eon’s model identifies incidental thyroid nodules on Computed Tomography (CT), Ultrasound (US), Magnetic Resonance (MR), Fluoroscopy and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) studies.

Eon EPM for Incidental Thyroid Nodules

Features and Attributes

Incidental Identification

EPM identifies and extracts pertinent information from radiology reports and automatically communicates the next steps to providers and patients.

  • Detects incidental thyroid nodules noted in radiology reports
  • Enters patient information into the EPM dashboard for serial surveillance
  • Does not require radiologists to use structured reports

Longitudinal Tracking

Ninety-five percent of thyroid nodules are asymptomatic and only need routine screening and longitudinal tracking. EPM automates repetitive tasks allowing FTEs to spend more time on patient care and less time on admin.

  • Ensures patients are tracked and followed per evidence based guidelines (ACR, AUS, ATA).
  • Automates reminders for exams and procedures
  • Prioritizes high-risk patients and triggers follow-up for low-risk patients
  • Streamlines serial surveillance with proprietary tools that “listen” for exams/procedures to be scheduled and notify providers if they are not
