SBMR

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course is designed for radiologists who find themselves challenged by the new practical issues of performing successful high-quality breast imaging in a
changing medical environment. This year, we have redesigned the course to better meet every radiologist’s ongoing breast imaging needs:

FOUR GREAT WAYS TO MEET ALL YOUR INITIAL TRAINING REQUIREMENTS FOR MQSA AND ACR ACCREDITATION IN MAMMOGRAPHY AND BREAST MRI (Society Of Breast MRI Hands-On 100 Case Review), AND INITIAL FDA NEW MODALITY TRAINING REQUIREMENTS FOR FDA FOR TOMOSYNTHESIS AND AUTOMATED WHOLE BREAST ULTRASOUND, ALL IN ONE CONFERENCE!

Attendees have a CHOICE of attending the didactic track encompassing all breast imaging modalities, and/or any or all of the FOUR interactive workshop tracks, all taught by a world class faculty:
1. In MAMMOGRAPHY (240 unknown cases read by each attendee at the
workstation)
2. In MRI (Society of Breast MRI Hands-on 100 case review at the workstation), and
3. In TOMOSYNTHESIS (8 hours of interactive instruction).
4. In AUTOMATED WHOLE BREAST ULTRASOUND (5 hour training course plus 3 hours prerequisite self-study prior to hands-on session).

 

By doing so, attendees can meet the 240 case initial recertification requirements in mammography under MQSA, meet the 100 cases MRI interpretation requirements for ACR accreditation in breast MRI, and meet the initial 8 hours of training required by FDA for interpretation of Tomosynthesis cases!

As mentioned above, this year we are adding a special AUTOMATED WHOLE BREAST ULTRASOUND session which includes 4 hours prerequisite self study to be completed prior to 4 hour hands on training at the workstation. Attendees can thereby meet the 8 hours of initial FDA new modality training for interpretation of automated whole breast ultrasound studies. required by the FDA.

Attendees can choose to attend only the didactic track, OR can combine the didactic track with ANY OR ALL of these four interactive tracks! (They also may choose to attend only the 8 hour Tomosynthesis track. In order to receive the 8 hour certification in tomosynthesis, FDA requires 8 hours of prior training in digital mammography. If you do not have prior training in digital mammography, this can be fulfilled by also taking the digital mammography workshop track.

Attendees can also choose to attend only the Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound track on the afternoon of the last day of the course, if they wish. (THIS OPTION IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR TECHNOLOGISTS).

The extremely popular and successful hands-on workshops teaching stereotactic, ultrasound-guided, and MR needle biopsy techniques and Whole Breast Ultrasound, featuring the latest equipment from a wide spectrum of vendors, will also again be offered and will be included as part of the didactic lecture track.

SPECIAL NOTICE TO THOSE WISHING TO ATTEND THE 8 HOUR ALL DAY INTERACTIVE TOMOSYNTHESIS COURSE ON FRIDAY:

This course includes the option to read 80 tomosynthesis cases on your own at the workstation. Attendees can do so PRIOR TO the interactive Tomosynthesis lecture course on Friday, OR can review the tomosynthesis cases at the workstation on Friday afternoon, after the morning didactic session on Tomosynthesis. The latter way of attending the Tomosynthesis course is more ideal, as the attendees would be gaining the full benefit of the didactic lectures prior to reviewing cases “live” at the workstation. HOWEVER, if you wish to review tomo cases at the workstation up to and including Thursday night instead of waiting until after the didactic portion of the tomosynthesis course on Friday, you will have completed 8 hours of tomosynthesis training by the end of the didactic course at 12:00 Noon on Friday, and are free to leave at that time. HOWEVER, if you choose to do this, it would be VERY HELPFUL to you to attend the workshop orientation session at 7 PM on Sunday, August 7. If you choose the option of reading tomosynthesis cases at the workstation after the didactic tomosynthesis lectures on Friday morning (which is the PREFERRED ORDER for the most learning benefit), then you must stay until 5:30 PM Friday to complete the 8 hours of the Tomosynthesis course.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course, registrants will be able to:
• Apply new and improved skills in perception to the interpretation of screening mammograms.
• Develop strategies to reduce the possibility of a missed lesion at screening.
• 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.
• Perform the techniques of stereotactic, ultrasound, and MR-guided core needle biopsy of the breast.
• Delineate the expanding role of the Breast MR in the everyday practice of breast imaging, including its role in screening high-risk patients.
• Perform interpretation of up to 240 digital mammograms at the workstation, documented toward accreditation or re-accreditation in mammography under MQSA.
• Perform interpretation of up to 100 Breast MR examinations, documented toward ACR Breast MR accreditation.
• Acquire up to 8 hours of Tomosynthesis interactive instruction, documented toward fulfilling the 8 hours required by FDA for one to perform and interpret Tomosynthesis.
• Appreciate the role of Whole Breast Ultrasound in breast cancer screening.

The demand for tickets for both the Opera and the Chamber Music Festival is extremely high. Consequently, ticket requests should be made as early as possible.
