Stereotactic and ultrasound breast biopsy are used to obtain pathologic information from mammographic areas of suspicion. When a mass, microcalcifications, or area of abnormal tissue change exist; stereotactic and ultrasound breast biopsy offers a minimally invasive alternative to open surgical biopsy, often before a mass develops.

This course offers the attendee the opportunity to learn the basics, as well as the tricks of the trade, from experienced instructors with multi-vendor competence. Our instructors are excited and willing to share this knowledge to help bridge the gaps in training, so that intelligent performance becomes your daily mode of operation. Supervised simulation and hands-on training with phantoms, live-models, and biopsy devices make this course refreshingly unique.

Critical thinking becomes possible once attendees develop an understanding of why and how these procedures are done rather than “this is how we have always done it”. In addition to covering quality assurance and patient documentation, the two day course reviews the ACR and ASBrS accreditation requirements and fulfills the credits required for accreditation.

Educational Objectives:
At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:

• Explain and provide an overview of biopsy options for detection of breast cancer.
• Discuss the differences in biopsy needles and stereo tables.
• Clarify the difference between polar and Cartesian coordinate systems.
• Describe the components of the stereo images and how they work together.
• Demonstrate the importance of needle position in correlation to the area of interest in stereotactic breast biopsy procedures.
• Formulate problem solving skills when faced with difficult scenarios in breast biopsy techniques.
• Demonstrate proper patient positioning for stereotactic biopsy procedures.
• Review the importance of QA , ACR and ASBrS  requirements to help improve patient care and daily maintenance of your center.
• Review breast ultrasound algorithm and terminology.
• Review ultrasound and mammographic correlation
• Demonstrate how to use ultrasound equipment and minimally invasive techniques to accomplish ultrasound guided breast biopsy procedures.
• Discuss the importance of accurate tissue samples for the most precise diagnosis
• Identify high quality tissue and why it leads to high quality diagnosis.
• Explain artifacts that can lead to inconclusive results.
