Course Description

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women with a stable incidence and a decrease in mortality, which is attributed to improved imaging and therapeutic options. Detection and characterization of breast cancer at an early stage is pivotal. Morphologic imaging is still of utmost importance. Nevertheless functional and molecular imaging techniques are assuming an increasingly important role in the non-invasive diagnosis and staging of breast tumors. In recent years there have been advances with regards to functional and molecular imaging in all breast imaging techniques such as mammography/ tomosynthesis, ultrasound, MRI, and nuclear medicine. Profound knowledge and understanding of current and emerging morphologic, functional, and molecular imaging modalities are warranted. This allows a deeper insight into tumor biology and represents one more step towards personalized medicine.
In 1.5 days this concise yet comprehensive workshop will provide an update on the state of the art as well as cutting edge technologies in breast imaging. Each modality-based session will also feature tutored hands-on teaching of clinical cases to maximize learning benefits in an interactive educational setting.
