VIRTUAL Mammography in Santa Fe in the Virtual Big Apple FEATURING THE LEGENDS OF BREAST IMAGING:
TABAR, STAVROS, CARDEÑOSA, NEWSTEAD, PORTER, COMSTOCK, DESTOUNIS, LEUNG, & ROUX
Please note: This course will be a virtual activity.
LECTURE TIMES ARE EASTERN STANDARD TIME
Welcome to the VIRTUAL SANTA FE IN THE VIRTUAL BIG APPLE course! Because of the many travel challenges confronting us due to the pandemic, we are offering this VIRTUAL version of our live 25th Anniversary MAMMOGRAPHY IN SANTA FE, which was on the ground in Santa Fe, August 2-6. In lieu of our long-standing “Breast Imaging in the Big Apple” conference in New York, we are moving our Virtual Santa Fe meeting into the Big Apple time slot, December 10-12!
This VIRTUAL course cannot offer the unique hands-on interactive workshops of the meeting on the ground, but we are able to offer the ENTIRE DIDACTIC PROGRAM of 24 lectures presented by our world-class faculty at the Santa Fe conference on the ground in August. These lectures will provide attendees with an overview of both basic principles of breast imaging and cutting edge advanced concepts, all designed to provide valuable practical information to bolster the skills of today’s busy breast imager. We look forward to your joining us virtually for a weekend with the Legends of Breast Imaging – TABAR, STAVROS, CARDEÑOSA, NEWSTEAD, PORTER, & COMSTOCK, AMONG OTHERS – who have taken breast imaging to the next level with their brilliant teaching at our Santa Fe course over the past 25 years!
As a wonderful bonus, the VIRTUAL format provides the added feature of allowing access to the videos of all lectures for the next 6 months after the conclusion of the course. Therefore, the lectures can be reviewed multiple times, at any time, during those 6 months, at the convenience of the attendee! This feature is especially nice for those of you living in time zones widely different from those of the conference.
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 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.
- Understand the ever-increasing role in breast imaging of skilled personal communication with the patient.
- Discern the burgeoning role of breast ultrasound as a screening and diagnostic tool.
