Course Description:
This course provides structured guidelines based on a decision-analytical approach that is designed to help radiologists decide when to recommend a biopsy or short-interval follow-up based on a patient-specific breast cancer risk. The course presents a decision process model that optimizes the post-mammography diagnostic decisions for an individual woman that maximizes her total expected quality-adjusted life-years. Clinical data is used in solving the model and the results are compared with the actual decisions made by radiologists.

Topics:
• Introduction
• Background on Mammography Interpretation
• Problem Formulation
• Structural Properties
• Computational Results
• Conclusions

Conference Objective:
• Participants completing this course will gain an understanding of new structured guidelines on when to recommend a biopsy or short-interval follow-up based on a patient-specific breast cancer risk.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
