Digital Breast Tomosynthesis: Practical Application

Sep 30, 2017

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) is an exciting new application of digital mammography recently approved by the FDA. DBT is a three-dimensional technology that provides thin cross sectional images through the breast. This technology is designed to prevent overlying structures from obscuring breast masses and intersecting normal structures from being falsely identified as a cancer. This webinar will provide you with the tools you will need to understand the fundamentals, benefits and the daily utilization of DBT within your facility. A comprehensive look at the installation and implementation timeline, regulatory guidelines, and additional quality control test and personnel qualifications will also be discussed.

Trauma Radiography – Clinical Techniques

Nov 4, 2017

Recognition of the pathological processes present in your images is key to ensuring a successful imaging exam for trauma radiography. This seminar will introduce the methods and techniques to overcome non-routine challenges in diagnostic radiology. A major focus will be the inter-relationship of the various imaging modalities and how they clinically complement each other with imaging trauma patients. Select radiographic positions will be discussed as to clinical expectations in order to maximize diagnostic yield in an ALARA fashion and to give the participant a radiologist’s perspective as to the challenges in image interpretation. The speaker will be utilizing a case-based approach in the delivery of these concepts.
