KENNEWICK, WA - Trios Health says a physician for Trios Medical Group, Irene Feria, MD is now the third endocrinologist in Washington state to receive an Endocrine Certification in Neck Ultrasound, or ECNU. 

Trios says it's a distinguishing certification for an endocrinologist in the Tri-Cities, as well as regionally; The other two Washington-based endocrinologists with ECNU credentials are in Bellevue.

The ECNU is a professional certification from the American College of Endocrinology for physicians who perform consultations and diagnostic evaluations for thyroid and parathyroid disorders through both diagnostic ultrasound and ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration.

Dr. Feria has performed ultrasound-guided thyroid fine needle biopsies since 2006. She also offers Afirma Gene Expression Classifier analysis as an extension of this service.

This molecular marker analysis can help identify benign nodules among those for which cytology testing was inconclusive-potentially reducing unnecessary thyroid surgeries.

Dr. Feria practices at the Trios Care Center at Vista Field (formerly known as the Medical Mall).
