Course Description

Dr. Thomas Stavros, author of Breast Ultrasound, Dr. Kevin Kelly, along with supporting faculty present standard and emerging breast imaging techniques for both early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. The emphasis will be on the macroscopic histology and pathology, correlated with the sonographic appearance of benign and malignant abnormalities (contrasted with pattern recognition techniques). New Developments in breast ultrasound are also discussed.

 

Educational Objectives

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

  • Utilize ultrasound effectively to reduce the failure in cancer detection before the next mammogram
  • Provide participants with the tools to better discriminate between breast cancer versus benign lesions
  • More appropriately select lesions for biopsy
  • Should have a greater appreciation of the potential of ultrasound in the screening environment
  • Learn the ultrasound skills required for a breast specialist and the benefits from acquiring those skills
  • Discover a decade of cancers in complete breast cine loops at your computer workstation
  • fulfill scanning and interventional ultrasound requirements for Breast Center of Excellence status
