Statement of Purpose:
Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) uses innovative, ground-breaking technology to efficiently supplement mammography and detect additional node negative, sub-centimeter invasive breast cancers. This webinar will provide an overview on the issues involving the management of dense breast tissue and potential strategies for incorporating ABUS into routine practice.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
  • Recognize the challenges associated with screening dense breast tissue
  • Demonstrate a working knowledge of the current literature on breast screening ultrasonography
  • Identify potential limitations and benefits of traditional hand-held breast ultrasound
  • Explain the value of automated breast ultrasound (ABUS)
  • Implement an ABUS screening program that focuses on building breast density awareness, quality assurance and workflow efficiency
 
Intended Audience:
This course is intended for radiologists and other health care providers involved in the screening, diagnosis and management of patients with breast cancer, as well as technologists involved in the acquisition of images for breast imaging.
