46e congrès annuel de l’OTIMROEPMQ – 5 NOVEMBRE 2020

Nov 5, 2020

Noveau concept pour la 46e édition

Dans les circonstances actuelles liées à la COVID-19, l’Ordre a pris la décision d’annuler le congrès annuel des technologues qui devait avoir lieu au Château Mont Sainte-Anne, du 5 au 7 novembre 2020.

Étant soucieux d’offrir des occasions de formation continue à ses membres, l’Ordre offrira une série d’activités en ligne, équivalant à 5 heures de développement professionnel, durant la Semaine des technologues, au début du mois de novembre. Il s’agit également d’une belle occasion pour célébrer la profession.

Restez à l’affût ; des informations supplémentaires suivront dans les prochaines semaines.

Breast Density: Why It Matters

Not only has breast density long been known to mask breast cancer on mammography, but breast density is an independent risk factor for the development of breast cancer. To date more than half of U.S. states require women to be provided some level of notification about breast density after their mammograms. The increasing awareness about the importance of 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.
