MEETING DESCRIPTION:
Stereotactic Breast Biopsy Providing quality mammographic exams requires skill and knowledge beyond positioning and technique! The stereotactic core biopsy is both fast, accurate and highly technologist dependent. There is a 100% correlation between stereotactic biop-sies and surgical biopsies in the diagnosis of two early stage conditions, atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH) and ductal carci-noma in situ (DCIS). This course examines the procedure and explains imaging theory, techniques, equipment, and why the procedure is available at 1,200 hospitals, clinics, and breast centers in the United States. A seasoned mammogra-phy/stereotactic technologist will guide you through the step by step procedure and assist you with troubleshooting and other important aspects of this unique life saving biopsy method. Course Topics • History of Stereotactic Biopsy • Roles and Responsibilities - Mammographer - Radiologist - Physicist - Referring physician • Principles of Stereotactic core biopsy • Equipment - Dedicated - Add-on units • Biopsy Devices • Step-by-step Procedure • Quality Control • Accreditation • MRI Stereotactic Biopsy
