Barco Expands Breast Imaging Workshops to Train Radiologists in Early Detection
January 15, 2014 — Barco, an enterprise visualization manufacturer, has teamed up with Mammography Education Inc. to supply its latest mammography display systems and dedicated support for hands-on mammography CME courses designed to teach radiologists how to detect early-phase breast cancers.
Educating Radiologists to Promote Early Breast Cancer Detection
László Tabár, M.D., FACR (Hon), course director, professor emeritus of radiology and president, Mammography Education, is offering two workshops: "Hands-On Digital Mammography Screening and Multimodality Approach to Detection" and "Diagnosis of Breast Diseases" to train radiologists in the latest techniques. Tabár has conducted hundreds of digital mammography courses worldwide and offers a diverse curriculum of didactic sessions, hands-on training and case-based discussions to radiologists focused on mammography studies.
Barco contributes products and support for the workshops, such as Mammo Tomosynthesis 5MP and Coronis 5MP Mammo dual-head display systems as well as the Conference CloneView software tool for large-format image projection. The latest workshop series is the first collaboration with Tabár and Barco in the United States.
Early Detection Key to Successful Treatment
“We are providing clinicians with a live, hands-on experience to help them sharpen their reading techniques using the best digital mammography viewing stations on the market,” said Tabár. “By equipping radiologists with the skills to find cancers at their earliest stages — and recognize the full spectrum of normal breast images — we hope to minimize call-back rates without missing malignancies. Their success relies on using the most advanced display technologies available. The Barco display systems present the brightest, most precise images and smoothest reading capabilities; they are always the first and only choice for our workshops.”
Digital Mammography Workshop Schedule
Tabár’s upcoming workshop series will be held Jan. 20 - Sept. 18, 2014 at the Scottsdale Resort, Scottsdale, Ariz. A complete schedule can be found here.
