Course Description

This enduring material 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.

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 Tomosynthesis.
  • Appreciate the role of Whole Breast Ultrasound in breast cancer screening.
  • Acquire the 8 hours of training required by the FDA for one to perform and interpret Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound studies.
