Description

About us

Werner Kaiser himself, the inventor of breast MRI, introduced us to “his” method some 20 years ago. Over one decade we were part of his core team gaining extensive first-hand knowledge from Werner. Ever since then, breast MRI has been at the very center of our comprehensive activities. Meanwhile we have joined the small circle of internationally recognized top experts in breast MRI.

Since the very beginning of our activities, we have been jointly committed to scientifically sound, clinically relevant and didactically polished continuing education in breast MRI. The enthusiastic feedback from our participants motivates us to constantly improve our courses.

This is story behind this this two-part course: A coherent teaching of breast MRI on highest scientific, clinical and teaching standard. And most of all: You will have fun! Both courses are directly connected to each other. So, we recommend to book them as a bundle and you will receive a 20% discount. Depending on your previous knowledge and interests, you may, of course, attend any individual course.

We are looking forward to meeting you!
