Course Objectives

After completing this activity, practicing radiologists should be better able to:
  1. Review methods to optimize mammographic screening (i.e. increase cancer detection while minimizing false positives)
  2. Explain the roles and potential benefits of digital breast tomosynthesis and synthetic 2D imaging in the screening and diagnosis of breast cancer and benign breast diseases
  3. Discuss the data on the use of whole breast ultrasound and abbreviated breast MRI in the supplemental screening of women at average risk with dense breasts
  4. Discuss the strategies for breast MRI interpretation
  5. Improve image-guided breast biopsy skills
  6. Apply the ACR appropriateness criteria for the management of gynecomastia, benign disease, and male breast cancer
