About this event

This is an advanced level course in breast imaging with a specific focus on clinical applicability. Breast imaging is the most multimodal discipline in radiology, and the most interactive. In practice, it is a complex discipline that needs to take into account patient needs and epidemiological facts.

The course aims to discuss the current advances in breast imaging, from image generation to patient care and screening. 

On this day the following sessions will occur:

  • X-ray based imaging
  • Understanding breast cancer from micro to macro
  • MRI
  • Ultrasound
