Description

This breast MRI fellowship covers basic and advanced breast MRI techniques accompanied by relevant lectures, individual case readings and group case discussions. Training includes an overview of the main indications for use in clinical practice to perform breast MRI; implementation and reporting; applications from cancer diagnosis through surveillance and response assessment to restaging.
Structured reporting templates will be used to help you navigate and write high-quality reports.

At the end of the programme, you will be able to create your MRI protocol in clinical practice and follow the correct indications. You will also be able to do reports on common pathologies observed in daily practice, including interventional.

Participation in this fellowship (10 radiologists maximum) ensures a personal learning environment where you will enhance and strengthen your own and each other’s knowledge. In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentor.
