Course Description

SOCIETY OF BREAST MRI
1st International Congress on Breast MRI:
Breast MRI 2.0

The purpose of the meeting is to bring together radiologists, physicists and technologists who have a strong interest in breast MRI who would like to learn about ongoing research and discuss the future directions of breast MRI. The meeting will focus not only on Abbreviated Breast MRI (AB-MR), but also on a broad spectrum of other MR research topics. Clinical lectures and workshops that allow workstation reading will also be provided. The meeting will reflect an international focus and follow in the legacy of the late Werner Kaiser, who held a well-respected meeting in Jena, Germany, in past years. Proceedings from the Congress will be published following the conclusion of the meeting.

Optional Hands-On Case Review Workshops (FULL)

Breast MRI Workstation Case Review:  4 CME credits

Friday May 25, 2018 and Saturday May 26, 2018: 3:30-5:30 pm

Attendees will have the opportunity for hands on workstation case review of 100 screening and diagnostic breast MRIs with faculty supervision. An approach to breast MRI interpretation will be emphasized. Attendees will independently review the breast MRIs and receive immediate feedback. Workshop is limited to 40 attendees.

 

Abbreviated Breast MRI Workstation Case Review: 4 CME credits (FULL)

Sunday May 27, 2018: 1:00-5:00 pm

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in the first workshop of its kind. The workshop will include 50 abbreviated breast MRI cases as well as short didactic lectures on approaches to interpreting abbreviated breast MRI. Attendees will independently review the breast MRIs and receive immediate feedback for each case with faculty supervision. Workshop is limited to 40 attendees.

Educational Objectives

Attendees should, at the completion of this course be able to:

• Understand the role of breast MRI in clinical practice

• Improve breast MRI interpretive skills

• Understand current breast MRI screening guidelines and the economics of breast MRI

 

Target Audience

This CME activity is primarily intended and designed to educate Radiologists, Physicists, Technologists, as well as radiology residents and fellows.

 

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 24.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
