Description

This breast imaging fellowship will include from the basics to the advanced knowledge of breast MRI. All demonstrated clinical cases will contain the patient’s initial digital mammography and breast ultrasound images – based on them, the diagnostics would be completed by breast MRI, and biopsy/final histology results, if applicable.

Everyday usual and complicated or rare cases would help to become familiar with the semiology of this modality, as well as technical issues, artefacts and pitfalls. Indications and contraindications of breast MRI is a very important knowledge, for the method’s best usage. Advantages, disadvantages and limits of breast MRI would be also treated. Special issues as MRI-guided biopsy, BI-RADS MRI lexicon, implant complications, Gadolinium deposition problems would be discussed.

The fellow will be provided with the reporting templates and referring questionnaire, developed by the mentor. Up-to-date international recommendations, protocols, patient information and some newest, practical scientific articles would also be shared with the participants.

TMC Academy online radiology fellowships are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions making use of their camera and microphone in order to recreate the face-to-face experience. 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.

TMC Academy is a European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) Trusted Provider.

Level

Level III - Subspecialisation training
This radiology CME course 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.
