EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

By the end of this activity, registrants will be able to:

  • Apply new and improved skills in perception to the interpretation of screening mammograms.
  • Develop strategies to counter the attacks on the performance of regular screening mammography in women beginning at age 40, especially those at high risk for breast cancer.
  • Perform a more comprehensive evaluation of screening-detected abnormalities, including appropriate use of special mammographic views, ultrasound, MR, and other modalities.
  • Appraise the current status of interventional breast procedures, especially core biopsy.
  • Delineate the expanding role of Breast MR in everyday practice of breast imaging, including its role in screening high-risk patients, and the new role of abbreviated breast MR.
  • Appreciate the role of Whole Breast Ultrasound and Contrast Enhanced Mammography in breast cancer screening.
  • Discern the burgeoning role of breast ultrasound as a screening and diagnostic tool.
  • Understand the value of breast density in helping to establish breast cancer risk on imaging.
