ACR Mammography Case Review Program Now Available Online

High-tech e-learning program helps doctors sharpen breast cancer detection skills

December 22, 2014 — The American College of Radiology (ACR) Mammography Case Review (MCROnline improves physicians’ breast cancer detection skills by supplementing real world experience with electronic cases. This interactive e-learning program is a self-paced review that features a state-of-the-art interface with an interactive image detection mechanism to enhance learning.

The mobile compatible program offers high image quality and a viewer control of brightness, contrast, zoom and pan of images. Expert feedback is integrated throughout the program. Scoring is provided by category. Real-time benchmarking allows learners to compare their performance to their peers.

The new MCR Online offers expert rationales, links to PubMed references and automatic bookmarking, pause and resume features to easily claim, print and track credits. MCR Online also allows users to:

 

  • Focus on digital mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), stereotactic and ultrasound-guided biopsy
  • Demonstrate appropriate application of BI-RADS Atlas 5th Edition descriptors and assessment categories for U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations
  • Distinguish normal and abnormal anatomic structures and breast lesions for biopsy

 

“Mammography has helped reduce breast cancer deaths by 35 percent nationwide and is the gold standard for breast cancer detection. Mammography Case Review (MCR) Online helps physicians better interpret breast imaging exams which remain our primary weapons in the battle against breast cancer,” said Edward A. Sickles, M.D., FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Commission Mammography Case Review Committee.

Participants may claim 15 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits and equivalent SA-CME for completing the MCR Online program.
