    This is such a nice illustration of QI methodology applied authentically. The identification of the root cause of the problem, which is inconsistent characterization of thyroid nodules at US, and then the introduction of a standardized worksheet that was used with a very high degree of fidelity (e.g., 100%!) lends a great deal of plausibility towards your determination that your intervention led to the desired result, which was decreased unnecessary FNAs. A really great Choosing Wisely initaitive!
