Keep Pace with the Latest in Breast Imaging

Topics in Mammography is the 6th edition of our comprehensive breast imaging program. This CME course features engaging audio commentary with an information-packed virtual slideshow — rich with charts, graphics and radiology images — to enhance your learning and help you stay current.

In addition to delving into areas like imaging and intervention,  breast density controversies, and medical legal issues, new Topics in Mammography presentations include:

  • In-depth look at tomosynthesis, including approaches to asymmetries not resolved by tomosynthesis (This program meets FDA requirements for 8 hours of tomosynthesis training as a new modality for radiologists)
  • Inclusive discussion of strategies and outcomes for dense breasts, high-risk lesions and percutaneous biopsies
  • State-of-the-art review of conventional imaging and galactography
  • Informative overview of surveillance strategies

Plus, you'll have the opportunity to earn a maximum of 30.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits for mammography and image-guided biopsy — more credits than ever before!
