Women’s Imaging Conference Tackles New Technology

December 20, 2007 – The University of Rochester, Department of Imaging Sciences, is presenting its second 2nd Annual Women’s Imaging Conference in San Antonio, TX, at the Westin La Cantera Resort, Feb. 3 to Feb. 6, 2008, focusing on digital mammography, breast MR, ultrasound and transitioning to a digital environment.
Also on the agenda is the discussion of advances in new technologies, including cone beam CT, tomosynthesis and MR screening for high-risk patients. Other areas of women’s imaging, such as cardiovascular, osteoporosis and thyroid will be included.
Lectures will focus on workflow and legal and economic issues resulting from transitioning to a filmless and paperless environment, including two sessions dedicated to digital mammography and breast MR for technologists.
Participants may schedule personal 30-minute sessions at any one of six different vendor’s multimodality breast imaging workstations where one can evaluate features such as: intuitiveness of the GUI, functionality of the worklist, workflow to view mammograms, hanging protocols, ability to process studies from various vendor’s mammography systems, number of clicks, integration with report and communication applications and ability to view modalities other than digital mammography, such as MR, US, PET/CT, nuclear medicine studies, projection radiograps and CT with 3D capabilities.
This year’s meeting has been designed to make it easy for attendees to have a side-by-side comparison of workstations from different vendors and determine which workstation outperforms another.
Also offered is three 50-minute US-guided breast biopsy workshops using exhibitor-provided equipment under the direction of Workshop Leaders including Margarity Zulley, MD, from the University of Pittsburgh’s Magee-Women’s Hospital, Phillip F. Murphy, MD, from the Elizabeth Wende Breast Clinic and Steven F. Harms, MD, FACR, from the Breast Center of Northwest Arkansas.
