Breast Imaging from A to Z: Read Like (or Better Than!) the Experts

17–20 July 2017
Waimea, United States
 
By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

Analyze the histopathologic basis for benign and malignant breast lesions

Analyze more robust and simplified methods of evaluating asymmetries commonly seen at screening and diagnostic settings

Assess criteria for imaging diagnoses of benign, probably benign, and suspicious imaging findings on mammography, ultrasound, MRI

Assess Criteria For Imaging Diagnoses And Need For Tissue Diagnosis Of Identified Breast Lesions

Determine suitability for nonpalpable lesions subject to imaging surveillance as opposed to biopsy

Analyze applications, techniques, and pitfalls of stereotactic, ultrasound, and MRI-guided biopsy

Evaluate the basis and evidence for recommending surgical excision of “high risk” lesions determined by percutaneous biopsy

Analyze current issues involved in breast density evaluation including risk and supplementary screening indications

Evaluate efficacy of supplementary screening and advanced screening techniques including whole breast ultrasound, tomosynthesis, MRI, and nuclear medicine imaging of the breast

Evaluate evidence based approaches to MRI lesion evaluation, and determine efficacy of different indications for use of breast MRI

Determine medical legal implications of different approaches to clinical breast imaging and communications and develop strategies toward risk reduction
