Intensive Breast Ultrasound:
Approach to Detection and Diagnosis
Venetian Resort and Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
• Learn the benefits and ultrasound skills required for a breast specialist
• Discover up to a decade’s worth of cancers in complete breast cine loops working at your computer workstation
• Fulfill scanning and interventional ultrasound requirements for Breast Center of Excellence status
Course Enrollment Limited to 120 Attendees.
Thomas Stavros, MD, author of Breast Ultrasound, Kevin Kelly, MD, (Hall Health Center, Venice, CA), and supporting faculty present standard and emerging breast imaging techniques for clinicians to provide their patients with both early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. The emphasis will be on the macroscopic histology and pathology, correlated with the sonographic appearance of benign and malignant abnormalities (contrasted with pattern recognition techniques). Sessions will be augmented by a three-stage learning process of (1) conventional didactic format (with PowerPoint slides and illustrative images); (2) simulated real-time scanning review (checkpoints) of selected sessions with high-resolution cine presentations on computer workstations (one for every two attendees); (3) extended hands-on workshops, during which attendees will work at their own pace under mentoring by the faculty. The Course will also incorporate material on supplementary screening breast ultrasound and new developments in breast ultrasound.
