Event Type: ultrasound, course
Organized By: Larry Carney
Latest Activity: Jul 25, 2012
The importance of ultrasound as an adjunct procedure to mammography is well documented. The normal anatomy, physiology, and pathologic conditions evaluated by ultrasound will be the basis of this educational activity. The increased utilization of breast ultrasound requires clinicians to integrate the fundamentals of sonography and mammography to enhance the value of breast ultrasound. The course combines classroom learning with practical hands on scanning to maximize the learning experience. Ultrasound-guided interventional procedures and examination of breast implants will be discussed. Case studies will be utilized to correlate the mammogram with the breast ultrasound, and to recognize breast ultrasound artifacts.
