Event Overview
Welcome message:

A practical clinically focused approach to breast imaging will be presented.  Focused discussions on the use of mammography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging in the detection and evaluation of lesions are intended to optimize needed clinical, imaging and pathological concordance.  The data in support of aggressive screening guidelines and the impact of digital breast tomosynthesis on work flow will also be examined.

Use historical and current data that support the annual use of screening mammography in all women at average risk for breast cancer starting at age 40 and to effectively communicate with, and educate, referring physicians and patients regarding the benefits of a robust screening program.

Recognize the importance and absolute need for establishing clinical, imaging and pathologic concordance.

Assess the impact on work-flow and applications of digital breast tomosynthesis in screening and diagnostic settings.
