Level

Level III - Subspecialisation training
This fellowship is expecting those, who want to complete their breast diagnostic knowledge by the most advanced modality. This course is designed for the Fellow who is already familiar with the daily practice of breast diagnostics (mammography, breast ultrasound, interventions) and with basic pathological and oncological issues of breast cancer. The reason of these requirements is that breast MRI cannot be always considered as a standalone method, but rather as a highest level, add-on, fine tool.
