Breast Ultrasound With Tom Stavros: Hot Topics In Advanced Screening And Diagnosis 2019

Organized by : World Class CME
Specialties : Breast Radiology   |   Radiology   |   Nursing   |   Cosmetic Breast Surgery
 

Breast Ultrasound With Tom Stavros: Hot Topics In Advanced Screening And Diagnosis is organized by World Class CME and will be held from Jan 18 - 20, 2019 at The Westin Riverwalk, San Antonio, San Antonio, Texas, United States of America.

The target audience for this medical event is Radiologists and radiology residents/fellows, breast surgeons, sonographers, radiology technologists and advanced practitioners who desire to learn, in depth, how to use breast ultrasound in a clinical practice setting for diagnosis, screening and staging of breast disease. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits and 5.0 SAMs Credits.

Course Description:
This course will emphasize a new classification system on breast cancer and will focus “non”-mass ultrasound findings, an analysis of 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. I will lead interactive case readings with an audience response system, and we have time set aside for questions and answers.”

Course Objectives:
Upon completion of this conference, the participant 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
• Recognize the range of normal and abnormal appearances for breast implants
• Understand the roles of ultrasound and galactography in diagnosis and guiding biopsy in patients presenting with nipple discharge
• Enhance ultrasound-guided breast biopsy and interventional skills
• Utilize the new classification system of breast malignancies that is based upon site of origin – within ducts, within TDLUs, or within peri-ductal mesenchymal tissues for better correlation with prognosis
• Understand the appropriate role for supplemental bilateral whole breast ultrasound as well as other ancillary imaging modalities in women with negative but dense mammograms
• Improve detection and correct classification of small invasive breast cancers while minimizing false positive ultrasound examinations
• Learn how to overcome the headwinds in establishing a supplemental whole breast ultrasound program in women with dense breasts
• Learn to distinguish normal from abnormal regional lymph nodes, determine whether abnormal nodes are more likely metastatic or reactive, and how Z0011 might affect current management of nodes
• Become familiar with a new functional imaging platform called Opto-acoustic Imaging
• Understand the benefits of integrating this new technology into breast ultrasound, so that the radiologist can significantly increase specificity when analyzing a mass, and potentially obviate the need for many breast biopsies
