Earn SAM Credit

Qualified by the American Board of Radiology in meeting the criteria for self-assessment toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification Program.

“Breast Imaging from A to Z: How to Read Like (or Better Than!) the Experts” has been qualified by the American Board of Radiology for 8 SAM credits.

SAM credits are required for radiologists certified since 2002, and strongly suggested for all radiologists. Due to recent CMS negotiations with the American Board of Radiologist, EVEN radiologists with grandfathered lifetime certification are now encouraged to participate in the MOC process. Specifically, pay for performance incentives–that may evolve into penalties for noncompliance–are being linked to “being in the process of obtaining” MOC. You can contact the ABR for specifics.

As an attendee of the Breast Imaging from A to Z course, you are eligible to obtain 8 SAMS credits offered for this course. The process is very simple and will take only a few minutes to complete. At the course, you will be given a website link to take the post-course quiz and print out your own SAMs certificate.


The Las Vegas course has been approved for up to 16.5 ARRT Category A CE credits for those technologists attending the entire course.

The New York course is pending approval for up to 15.5 ARRT Category A CE credits for those technologists attending the entire course.

The Hawaii course is penidng approval for up to 16.5 ARRT Category A CE credits for those technologists attending the entire course.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

This course provides an integrated full discussion aimed at comprehending the basis and applications of breast imaging in five distinct sessions, using a case based approach supported by evidence-based literature review.

Session 1 will take the attendee through the histopathologic basis for benign and malignant breast disease with imaging correlates. Conventional topics with simplified and novel strategies are presented to both review and advance the practice of mammography and ultrasound.

Session 2 focuses on imaging diagnoses for which surveillance may be reasonable and will emphasize techniques and analytic parameters regarding intervention and tissue diagnosis.

Session 3 will address the critical issues of breast density risk assessment as well as perspectives on supplementary screening such as whole breast ultrasound and tomosynthesis.

Session 4 explores in depth both current and evolving concepts and strategies in MRI interpretation with review of literature and case based presentation.

Session 5 explores the issues of medical legal accountability in interpretation and communication as well as providing strategies to avoid liability.


By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

Analyze the histopathologic basis for benign and malignant breast lesions

Analyze more robust and simplified methods of evaluating asymmetries commonly seen at screening and diagnostic settings

Assess criteria for imaging diagnoses of benign, probably benign, and suspicious imaging findings on mammography, ultrasound, MRI

Assess Criteria For Imaging Diagnoses And Need For Tissue Diagnosis Of Identified Breast Lesions

Determine suitability for nonpalpable lesions subject to imaging surveillance as opposed to biopsy

Analyze applications, techniques, and pitfalls of stereotactic, ultrasound, and MRI-guided biopsy

Evaluate the basis and evidence for recommending surgical excision of “high risk” lesions determined by percutaneous biopsy

Analyze current issues involved in breast density evaluation including risk and supplementary screening indications

Evaluate efficacy of supplementary screening and advanced screening techniques including whole breast ultrasound, tomosynthesis, MRI, and nuclear medicine imaging of the breast

Evaluate evidence-based approaches to MRI lesion evaluation, and determine efficacy of different indications for use of breast MRI

Determine medical-legal implications of different approaches to clinical breast imaging and communications and develop strategies toward risk reduction

Target Audience:

targets1. General radiologists and trainees interested in breast imaging

2. Radiology residents and fellows in training

3. Radiology technologists, nurses and radiology physician assistants

4. Breast surgeons

5. Allied health care professionals who desire to have an update on the state of current imaging as an aid to patient management for diseases of the breast.
