Keep Pace with the Latest in Breast Imaging

Topics in Mammography is the seventh edition of our comprehensive breast imaging program. This audio CME course features engaging commentary and an information-packed virtual slideshow, rich with charts, graphics and radiology images. Through case studies and literature reviews, speakers will guide you in evaluation of the potentials and pitfalls of both current and new imaging approaches.

Topics in Mammography delivers:

  • A full 8-hour course in tomosynthesis — evidence-based analysis of its strengths, applications, and limitations
  • A balanced, up-to-date evaluation of management of percutaneous core biopsy results and new localization techniques
  • Practical approaches to evaluation and management dilemmas — asymmetries, the pregnant patient, young women with cancer
  • State-of-the-art discussions of breast MRI indications and future directions
  • Simplified objective perspectives on common imaging issues — masses, calcifications, and surveillance
  • A comprehensive medical legal overview of common breast imaging situations and suggested solutions
  • Critical considerations regarding breast density and supplementary imaging strategies

Plus, you'll have the opportunity to earn a maximum of 32 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits for mammography and image-guided biopsy — more credits than ever before!
