Updated throughout for 2019, this well-received comprehensive course on breast ultrasound, with an emphasis on a new classification system on breast cancer, “non”- mass ultrasound findings, a look at causes of false negative BI-RADS 3 classifications, and new ways of classifying breast nodules that can help objectively assign BI-RADS 4 subcategories and improve ultrasound’s ability to serve as a biomarker. In addition to faculty panel discussions with audience participation, there will be numerous case presentations and time set aside for questions and answers.

Course Objectives:
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Understand the differences in pre-test probabilities and guidelines for interpretation between diagnostic, supplemental screening, and MRI-directed indications for breast ultrasound and how that affects management and interpretation
• Select the most appropriate ultrasound equipment, machine settings, and scan techniques for better diagnostic evaluations
• Understand the anatomic and histopathologic basis for ultrasound appearances
• Correlate areas of clinical, mammographic, screening ultrasound, or MRI concern with ultrasound, and understand the anatomic and histopathologic basis for ultrasound appearances
• Identify both mass and non-mass sonographic findings that are suspicious for malignancy, how to use them in classifying breast masses and in staging breast cancers
• Understand a new way of classifying ultrasound features that can aid in more objectively using and achieving ACR PPV benchmarks for BI-RADS 4 subcategories and function better as biomarkers than prior methods of classification
• Identify the few truly suspicious complex cystic and solid masses that require biopsy and distinguish them from the myriad of non-simple breast cysts that are definitively benign
• Understand the roles of ultrasound and galactography in the diagnosis and guiding biopsy in patients presenting with nipple discharge
• Recognize the range of normal and abnormal appearances for breast implants
• Enhance ultrasound-guided breast biopsy and interventional skills
