Confirma Offers CME Programs for Breast MRI

July 9, 2008 — Confirma is expanding customer support by providing increased access to CME-accredited educational programs for physicians to meet the growing demand for breast MRI.

Confirma supports professional development in breast MRI through educational grants to organizations, including the International Center for Postgraduate Medical Education (ICPME) and The Scienomics Group. Education programs consist of a variety of online case review seminars, fellowships, and didactic and hands-on training workshops.

The hands-on courses, supported by Confirma, are intended to educate physicians and technologists who offer breast MRI examinations and perform MRI-guided breast biopsies. Educational objectives include: assessing the clinical role of breast MRI in patient selection and the detection, diagnosis and management of breast disease; developing standardized post-processing techniques to determine the morphology and kinetics of lesions in breast MRI; and accurately interpreting and reporting breast MR images in accordance with the ACR BI-RADS. Participants also have the opportunity to review cases using CAD and practice MRI-guided biopsy techniques using a breast biopsy system.

Confirma is also providing a grant along with Bayer Healthcare for a new educational program, Breast MRI Interpretation for Radiologists, led by Constance D. Lehman, M.D., Ph.D., director of radiology at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and professor of radiology at the University of Washington, and Gillian M. Newstead, M.D., professor of radiology and director of breast imaging at the University of Chicago.
