This program is designed to provide radiologists and other breast imaging healthcare professionals with the basics, as well as benign breast lesions. The focus of this course will be evaluation of the mammogram, integration of newer modalities for mammographic interpretation, breast MRI, breast specific gamma imaging, CAD and minimally invasive breast biopsy, as well as an emphasis on evaluation and screening of high risk women and multi-modality correlation.
The Course will be held at The Sheba Medical Center, Tel Aviv, Israel.
