2 workshops (duration 60 minutes)

Timing suggestion:

  • Thursday 1 March, interventional workshop, 15h00 to 16h00 (60 minutes)
  • Friday 2 March, interventional workshop, 09h30 to 10h30 (60 minutes)

 

Description of Workshop:

This one hour workshop focus on the use of Vacuum Assisted Breast Biopsy (VABB) with real-time imaging in conjunction with Tomosynthesis guidance. After an introductory lecture the participant will be given the opportunity for a live hand-on experience with prone biopsy guidance and upright biopsy guidance. The lecture part of the workshop will cover both theoretical and practical aspect of VABB real-time imaging with Tomosynthesis guidance. The trainer will also share personal experience in an interactive environment. The practical interactive hands-on part of the workshop will allow participants to use VABB real-time imaging and Tomosynthesis guidance equipment. The learning environment in small groups will allow the participants to get a good understanding of the technologies, the potential use in their clinical practices and how to address challenges with potential changes to clinical practices.

2 workshops (duration 90 minutes)

Timing suggestion:

  • Wednesday 28 February, basic Tomo workshop, 10h30 to 12h00 (90 minutes)
  • Friday 2 March, basic Tomo workshop, 13h00 to 14H30 (90 minutes)

Description of Workshop:

This 90 minutes hands-on reading workshop on high-resolution Tomosynthesis with synthesized 2D is intended for radiologists interested in learning more about this breast cancer screening and diagnosis technology. The workshop is composed of a short introductory lecture followed by hands-on reading of selected cases. The workshop will include an interactive discussion of the presented cases in a learning oriented setup with maximum two participants per reading workstation.

2 workshops (duration 90 minutes)

Timing suggestion:

  • Wednesday 28 February, advanced Tomo workshop, 13h00 to 14H30 (90 minutes)
  • Saturday 3 March, advanced Tomo workshop, 08h30 to 10H00 (90 minutes)

Description of Workshop:

The objective of this 90 minutes Tomosynthesis with synthesized 2D workshop is to address the clinical challenges faced by experienced Tomosynthesis users and provide a variety of solutions in the form of tips and tricks based on clinical cases selected, to illustrate each of the presented challenges. To ensure optimal conditions for participants the number of people per reading workstation will be limited to two. Participants attending this workshop are expected to have experience in using Tomosynthesis.

During this hands-on workshop, using an advanced mammography workstation, the participants will review cases that cover key topics such as reading time, one-view only lesions, localization discrepancy and subtle distortions. The final diagnosis and the teaching value of the cases will be discussed.
