OAR The Bright Side of the Breast, Contrast Enhanced Mammography CME

Oct 3, 2020 to Oct 4, 2020

The Contrast Enhanced Mammography (CESM) CME is an emerging modality that may provide critical information in a number of clinical scenarios. As the interest in CESM grows, it is important for those who practice breast imaging to understand the role of CESM and the required steps to implement a program. This conference will highlight the advantages and challenges associated with CESM. The goal is to provide suggestions and tips to allow technologists to gain insight as to why their role is valuable and essential for a successful implementation of CESM program.

Objectives:

At the end of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Evaluate the requirements for implementing CESM program
  2. Discuss the clinical indications for performing CESM
  3. Recognize the benefits and disadvantages of CESM
  4. Describe benign and malignant features on CESM

OAR CBMD Accredited Densitometry (ADT) Course

Oct 17, 2020

The OAR CBMD Program adheres to the premise that there can be no accreditation without on-going education and that education to be effective and current, must continually evolve. Close to 500 MRTs across Canada, the majority of which are in Ontario, have earned their five-year ADT designation at least once since the program began in 2010. The CBMD course offers technologists the opportunity to work with/learn from
radiologists, medical physicists, and expert BMD MRTs in a formal continuing medical education setting.

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.
