Carestream Health Supports Continuing Mammography Education with Global Learning Programs

April 13, 2012 — Carestream is supporting a series of world-class mammography education, training and professional development opportunities, including continuing education (CE) and continuing medical education (CME) courses, to keep radiologists and technologists updated on the latest breast detection trends.

The programs will consist of a combination of accredited lectures, educational seminars with industry experts, online training from Carestream and live webinars available in conjunction with László Tabár, M.D. F.A.C.R. (Hon)—all of which are supported by educational grants from Carestream.

“We are dedicated to offering affordable, reliable mammography solutions for healthcare professionals across the globe in an effort to help women live longer, healthier lives through accurate and efficient breast cancer detection,” said Karen Willand, women’s healthcare marketing manager for Carestream Health. “Our continuing education program is another way to help ensure that mammography professionals have the knowledge they need to provide the highest-quality mammography services to patients.”

In 2012, Carestream is supporting the following accredited continuing education programs:

  • Mammography Education Inc. (MEI): CME courses on the diagnosis and treatment of breast diseases presented by Tabár and other internationally renowned experts. Locations include Italy, Spain, Latin America and North America;
  • iiCME Mammography Education Events: Courses to design, develop and deliver evidence-based scientific information to physicians and other healthcare professionals to promote lifelong learning. U.S. locations include New Mexico and New York;
  • Fit for Screening European Workshops: Mammography training workshops for radiologists and gynecologists, presented by Roland Holland in Austria, Germany and Poland;
  • Webinar Series: Focused on breast cancer detection and analysis, hosted by Tabár; and
  • Online e-Learning: Online courses that may include topics such as digital mammography workflow and workstation benefits, detector technology and patient positioning challenges in mammography.

 

According to the National Cancer Institute, more than 200,000 cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year. Early detection is key in combating the disease, and Carestream supports continuing education programs designed to keep radiologists, technologists and other medical professionals updated on the latest breast imaging trends.

a Schematic of the system. The entire solid tumour is illuminated from four sides by a four-arm fibre bundle. A cylindrically focused linear array is designed to detect optoacoustic signals from the tumour. In vivo imaging is performed in conical scanning geometry by controlling the rotation and translation stages. The sensing part of the transducer array and the tumour are submerged in water to provide acoustic coupling. b Maximum intensity projections of the optoacoustic reconstruction of a phantom of polyethylene microspheres (diameter, 20 μm) dispersed in agar. The inset shows a zoomed-in view of the region boxed with a yellow dashed line. In addition, the yellow boxes are signal profiles along the xy and z axes across the microsphere centre, as well as the corresponding full width at half-maximum values. c Normalized absorption spectra of Hb, HbO2 and gold nanoparticles (AuNPs). The spectrum for the AuNPs was obtained using a USB4000 spectrometer (Ocean Optics, Dunedin, FL, USA), while the spectra for Hb and HbO2 were taken from http://omlc.org/spectra/haemoglobin/index.html. The vertical dashed lines indicate the five wavelengths used to stimulate the three absorbers: 710, 750, 780, 810 and 850 nm. Optoacoustic signals were filtered into a low-frequency band (red) and high-frequency band (green), which were used to reconstruct separate images.

The Breast Imaging and Reporting System (BI-RADS) was established by the American College of Radiology to help classify findings on mammography. Findings are classified based on the risk of breast cancer, with a BI-RADS 2 lesion being benign, or not cancerous, and BI-RADS 6 representing a lesion that is biopsy-proven to be malignant.
