The Breast Imaging Minicourse is offered with a choice of 1 or 2 weeks in the division of Breast Imaging, Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, MA. Attendees will begin each day with a case conference given by the Breast Imaging attending. The remainder of the day, visiting fellows will accompany faculty as they review, and interpret a wide variety of Breast Imaging examinations, including screening and diagnostic mammograms in our all digital facility, breast ultrasound examinations on state‑of‑art equipment, and breast MRI examinations. Visitors will also be given the opportunity to observe examinations and percutaneous breast procedures being performed.
In addition to the one‑on‑one teaching by Breast Imaging faculty, visiting fellows will observe the entire gamut of image guided interventional breast procedures. These will include procedures performed using all imaging modalities (mammography, US, MRI). Participants will attend the daily morning case conference, 2 weekly multi‑disciplinary breast conferences including a tumor board; and a biweekly review focusing on radiologic‑patholgic correlation of all core needle biopsy cases.
Participants will have the opportunity to focus on diagnostic versus screening mammography, breast MRI or percutaneous procedures including biopsy, fi ne needle aspiration, drainage, etc, based on their needs and section activities.
