COURSE OVERVIEW

Program Description:

This 8 hour workshop will focus on Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) and its use in a clinical setting. The topics will include hands on assessment of DBT cases including screening and diagnostic setting and will involve hands on faculty led review of data sets on dedicated tomosynthesis work stations with an emphasis on audience participation.

Goals:

Radiologists, Technologists, Residents and Fellows working in the field of breast imaging will be introduced to the Advanced Imaging technique which will enhance the participants skills for integration of this technique within their practice.
 

TARGET AUDIENCE

This course is intended for Radiologists, and Medical Imaging Residents and Fellows.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the end of the workshop the participants will be able to:

  1. Describe how the breast tomosynthesis images are acquired and be able to compare tomosynthesis images with conventional digital images.
  2. Assess breast tomosynthesis images systematically.
  3. Differentiate benign and malignant lesions based on breast tomosynthesis images.
  4. Interpret digital breast tomosynthesis images in the accurate detection of breast disease; including breast carcinoma.
  5. Analyze cases with synthetic images on the workstation.
  6. Evaluate up to 75 clinical cases in real time on a dedicated breast tomosynthesis work station followed by faculty review.
