Hands-on Screening Course

Led by László Tabár, M.D., F.A.C.R. (Hon)

Dr. Tabár discusses the importance of teaching radiologists to find breast cancer in its earliest stages. This structured hands-on screening course offers reading of more than 240 full-field digital mammography cases displayed on EIZO monitors.

After every reading session there is immediate feedback and discussion of every case by the Faculty. Special emphasis is placed on finding early phase breast cancers and learning the full spectrum of normal breast images in order to minimize call-back rates without missing cancers. The complete imaging workup of each positive case will be presented in detail, including hand-held ultrasound, 3D automated ultrasound, breast MRI and large section histology. The attendees will receive a PDF copy of each positive case with full workup.

Multimodality Detection and Diagnosis of Breast Diseases

This course teaches the implications of mammography, breast MRI, hand-held and 3-dimensional automated breast ultrasound as well as interventional methods as part of the interdisciplinary team work. The mammographic, ultrasound, breast MRI and large section histology images of a wide range of breast diseases will be explained didactically, using the latest presentation technology tools in a unique presentation format.

MEI provides training and teaching on all aspects of breast imaging using the multimodality approach: mammography, breast ultraosund, tomosynthesis, breast MRI. Internationally reknowned Faculty teaches each of the imaging modalities.
