Other highlights will include Dr Elizabeth O’Flynn discussing MRI Parameters, Professor Andy Evans presenting Shear Wave Elastography Prediction and Professor Fiona Gilbert looking at Tomosynthesis.
There will be a session dedicated to Tailored Treatments and Professor Carlos Caldas (Cancer Research UK), Miss Adele Francis (University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Trust) and Professor Lesley Fallowfield (Brighton and Sussex Medical School) will focus on Biology of Breast Cancer, The DCIS Trial – initial experience and Our Esoteric Breast Cancer World.
