The Critical Role of the Breast Imaging Technologist-Imaging Normal Brst. & Dis.

Oct 18, 2018

The lectures on each major subject will be followed by interactive screening sessions consisting of a mixture of normal and abnormal cases presented on the large screen exactly as they appear on
the viewing station at screening. During the course the attendees will progressively improve their expertise as they learn the full spectrum of normal breast images. Special emphasis will be
placed on the mammographic appearance of the normal breast and the radiographers’ role in the imaging early phase breast cancers.

Breast Density: Why It Matters

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.
