Course Description

This CME program is designed to cover clinical aspects of breast imaging including digital mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, and interventional procedures, as well as medicolegal issues.  The faculty consists of twelve nationally and internationally recognized experts.  The program of lectures and panel discussions will be filled with “take home” information that should benefit every breast imaging practice.

Educational Objectives

At the completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

  • Discuss the new ACR BI-RADS 5th Edition terminology for breast imaging findings on mammography, ultrasound and MRI.
  • Develop a multimodality approach to screening, staging and clinical problem solving.
  • Develop a systematic approach to the assessment of findings on mammography, ultrasound, and MRI.
  • Appreciate the latest technologic developments in digital tomosynthesis, automated  breast ultrasound and breast MRI.
  • Understand the techniques and skills for performance of stereotactic, ultrasound-guided, and MRI- guided breast biopsy.
  • Discuss recent screening mammography controversies.
  • Reduce their risk of false negative interpretation and malpractice litigation.

Target Audience

This course is designed for radiologists who interpret breast imaging studies and perform breast interventional procedures.  Physicians in other specialties involved with the diagnosis and treatment of breast diseases, medical physicists, mammography technologists, breast center administrators, and other health care professionals will also benefit from this course.

Accreditation

The International Institute for Continuing Medical Education, Inc. is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Designation

The International Institute for Continuing Medical Education, Inc., designates this live activity for a maximum of 21.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
