Overview

Keep Pace with the Latest in Breast Imaging

Topics in Mammography is the seventh edition of our comprehensive breast imaging program. This audio CME course features engaging commentary and an information-packed virtual slideshow, rich with charts, graphics and radiology images. Through case studies and literature reviews, speakers will guide you in evaluation of the potentials and pitfalls of both current and new imaging approaches.

Topics in Mammography delivers:

  • A full 8-hour course in tomosynthesis — evidence-based analysis of its strengths, applications, and limitations
  • A balanced, up-to-date evaluation of management of percutaneous core biopsy results and new localization techniques
  • Practical approaches to evaluation and management dilemmas — asymmetries, the pregnant patient, young women with cancer
  • State-of-the-art discussions of breast MRI indications and future directions
  • Simplified objective perspectives on common imaging issues — masses, calcifications, and surveillance
  • A comprehensive medical legal overview of common breast imaging situations and suggested solutions
  • Critical considerations regarding breast density and supplementary imaging strategies

Learning Objectives

  • Differentiate the imaging findings of benign and malignant breast masses
  • Recognize the features of benign or malignant calcifications on mammogram
  • Formulate approaches to one- and two-view asymmetries seen on screening mammogram
  • Recognize the issues regarding and methods to detect sentinel lymph nodes of the breast
  • Evaluate the issues regarding risk and breast density
  • Analyze the different approaches to supplementary screening imaging modalities beyond mammography
  • Recognize the indications and limitations of stereotactic breast biopsy
  • Analyze different approaches and limitations of ultrasound guided breast techniques
  • Compare different methods of preoperative image-guided localization of nonpalpable lesions for surgical excision
  • Decide on appropriate management recommendations following percutaneous breast biopsies of “high risk” lesions
