MRI of the breast: Expert Course


„Special focus: background parenchymal enhancement, DWI, ductal lesions

with Pascal Baltzer and Matthias Dietzel

SKU: N/A Categories: , ,


Dear colleagues,
Dear friends,

We cordially invite you to our breast MRI courses. 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. Here we gained 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 teaching in breast MRI. The enthusiastic feedback from our participants motivates us to constantly improve our courses.

Here comes the story behind our breast MRI courses: A coherent teaching on highest scientific, clinical and teaching standards. And most of all: You will have fun!

Our courses are designed as a sequel (Basic, Advanced, Expert). In case you book more than one course together, you receive a 20% bundle-discount. Depending on your previous knowledge and interest, you may, of course, attend any course individually.

We are looking forward to welcoming you soon at the School of Radiology!

Pascal Baltzer and Matthias Dietzel
