Learn Now: Advances in Breast Imaging

Comprehensive Review of Breast Imaging, an online CME course, is a broad introduction to recent advances and current standards of practice. Led by Michael J. Ulissey, MD, FACR, it provides highly focused information on clinically relevant topics such as evaluation and treatment of breast pain, tomosynthesis, MRI biopsies, breast MRI, solid breast masses, and more. It’s continuing medical education that will help you to better:

  • Improve ultrasound-guided breast biopsy and interventional skills
  • Identify both mass and non-mass sonographic findings suspicious for malignancy
  • Become familiar with optoacoustic Imaging
  • Understand the anatomic and histopathologic basis for ultrasound appearances
  • Recognize the range of normal and abnormal appearances for breast implants
  • Select the most apt ultrasound equipment, machine settings, and scan techniques for better diagnostic evaluations

This activity qualifies as SA-CME which can be used toward the Part 2 Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment requirement of the ABR's MOC Program.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this CME activity, the participant will be able to:

  • Understand the differences in pre-test probabilities and guidelines for interpretation between diagnostic, supplemental screening, and MRI-directed indications for breast ultrasound and how that affects management and interpretation
  • Select the most appropriate ultrasound equipment, machine settings, and scan techniques for better diagnostic evaluations
  • Understand the anatomic and histopathologic basis for ultrasound appearances
  • Correlate areas of clinical, mammographic, screening ultrasound, or MRI concern with ultrasound, and understand the anatomic and histopathologic basis for ultrasound appearances
  • Identify both mass and non-mass sonographic findings that are suspicious for malignancy, how to use them in classifying breast masses and in staging breast cancers
  • Understand a new way of classifying ultrasound features that can aid in more objectively using and achieving ACR PPV benchmarks for BI-RADS 4 subcategories and function better as biomarkers than prior methods of classification
  • Identify the few truly suspicious complex cystic and solid masses that require biopsy and distinguish them from the myriad of non-simple breast cysts that are definitively benign
  • Understand the roles of ultrasound and galactography in diagnosis and guiding biopsy in patients presenting with nipple discharge
  • Recognize the range of normal and abnormal appearances for breast implants
  • Enhance ultrasound-guided breast biopsy and interventional skills

Intended Audience

This educational activity was planned for diagnostic radiologists, breast imaging specialists, technologists, and other health care providers interested in breast radiology.
