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.”
