Not only has breast density long been known to mask breast cancer on mammography, it is also an independent risk factor for the development of breast cancer. To date, more than half of the states in the US have passed legislation requiring patients be provided with some level of breast density information after undergoing mammography. The increasing awareness about breast density is necessitating new conversations between patients and their healthcare providers. This course will educate healthcare professionals about breast density, its associated risks, as well as indications and use of supplemental screening with ultrasound, MRI, and discussion of nuclear medicine methods.
This course provides the technologist or therapist with a comprehensive view of CT, including the basic principles of CT physics; an introduction to computers and digital imaging; CT system design and components; image acquisition and reconstruction; image display, manipulation and storage; parameter options; image quality control and quality assurance; radiation dosimetry, patient dose, and protection; contrast media and injection techniques.
This Quick Self Study is an introduction to colorectal cancer, including prevention, treatment, prognosis and 2009 statistics.
