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 Time: 7:30 am to 12:15 pm
