Course Overview:

Dr. Thomas Stavros, author of Breast Ultrasound, Dr. Kevin Kelly, along with supporting faculty present standard and emerging breast imaging techniques for both early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. The emphasis will be on the macroscopic histology and pathology, correlated with the sonographic appearance of benign and malignant abnormalities (contrasted with pattern recognition techniques). Sessions will be augmented by a three-stage learning process of (1) conventional didactic format (with PowerPoint slides and illustrative images); (2) simulated real-time scanning review (checkpoints) of selected sessions with high-resolution cine presentations on computer workstations (one for every two attendees); (3) hands-on, faculty-mentored workshops. Supplementary screening materials and other new developments in breast ultrasound are also presented.

Who Should Attend:

This course is recommended for Radiologists, Surgeons, Sonographers, and Mammography Technologists with better-than-average skill in breast ultrasound, and an interest in improving those skills in screening for, and diagnosing breast cancer.

Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant should be better able to:

· Utilize ultrasound effectively to reduce the failure in cancer detection before the next mammogram 

· Provide attendees with the tools to better discriminate between breast cancer versus benign lesions 

· More appropriately select lesions for biopsy 

· Should have a greater appreciation of the potential of ultrasound in the screening environment 


  • Learn the ultrasound skills required for a breast specialist and the benefits from acquiring those skills


  • Discover a decade of cancers in complete breast cine loops at your computer workstation


  • Fulfill scanning and interventional ultrasound requirements for Breast Center of Excellence status
