Outline

1

Contrast-enhanced spectral mammography (CEM) is increasingly recognized as a powerful diagnostic tool in breast imaging. CEM relies on similar principles as breast MRI, highlighting cancer by IV contrast, thereby bypassing the limitation of dense breast tissue. Possible applications of CEM are problem solving and screening in women with dense breasts.
2

In this interactive course you will receive an evidence-based and unbiased expert view of CEM. You will learn all relevant technical basics of CEM. You will familiarize yourself with CEM in clinical examples. You will acquire practically relevant knowledge for your practice in interactive discussions. You will train your CEM skills during interactive case readings.
3

To optimize your teaching experience, we use latest e-learning technology including HD-streaming, multiple channels for interaction with your tutors and anonymous online polls with real time feedback.

Concept

1

Interactive full-day workshop
3

Impulse lectures: ALL relevant technical, clinical and practical basics to perform and to read breast MRI.
4

Interactive clinical case discussions: The heart of all our courses. Supported by online polls you will first interpret each case on your own. Then we will discuss each case in the group. None of your question will left unanswered. Promised!
5

Online teaching resources: In addition to the course we provide you extensive learning.
