It consists of a two-days basic course with lectures, interactive sessions and hands-on practical workshops followed by two-days of advanced topics on multimodality breast imaging and interventions.

Practical “hands-on” workshop sessions: US system optimization and scanning technique, vacuum assisted and core biopsies on phantoms, elastography, CAD and whole breast scanning.

 

The programme is available to clinicians and breast health professionals from all countries, and is presented in the English language. Comprehensive educational resource materials are provided.

The course is open to a maximum of 60 participants. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.
