Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
  • Understand and be able to describe the controversies surrounding dense breast legislation
  • Learn how a program of screening sonography can supplement screening mammography
  • Develop a strategy for incorporating supplemental breast ultrasound into a practice.
  • Understand the myriad of issues that come into play with regard to perceiving (or not perceiving) subtle signs of breast cancer on a mammogram
  • Modify viewing habits to decrease reading errors
  • Gain an understanding of new technologies on the horizon for use in breast imaging, including PEM, CEDM, I-125 radioactive seed localizations, and functional MR
  • Have a better understanding of radiological and pathological correlation after breast biopsy, as well as learn or refresh one's learning of how to manage high risk lesions
  • Understand the benefits and current data regarding 3D mammography and Digital Breast Tomosynthesis
  • Develop a strategy for implementing breast tomosynthesis in practice
  • Learn about the recent updates in the BI-RADS MRI lexicon and reporting guidelines
  • Discuss the implications of the BI-RADS changes in the assessment of masses, NME, and foci
