11th General Breast Imaging Meeting



We pleased to offer the following workshops.

 BreastScreen Hologic1Siemens GE





BreastScreen Reader Assessment Strategy (BREAST) workshops

At BIG 2017, BREAST will continue to offer test set reading for self-assessment and research with a brand new test set developed in collaboration with BreastScreen Counties Manukau. Participants will receive a personal performance report, completion certificate, and will be eligible to gain CPD points from RANZCR for partaking in a professional development activity. Please contact the College directly for advice regarding CPD points.

HOLOGIC Genius 3D™ - Reading Workshop

Hologic is offering 2.5 hour faculty led Genius 3D-reading workshops for Radiologists. These workshops, facilitated by an experienced Radiologist, feature an introduction and overview on Genius 3D Breast Imaging and C-View Software.

Participants will receive guidance on Tomosynthesis interpretation, at their own clinical workstations (max. 2 people / workstation), while reviewing 20 clinical Genius 3D data sets with accompanying 2D and/or C-View imaging.

Each session is limited to 16 participants. RANZCR CPD points to apply.

NB: Genius 3D reading workshops on Fri and Sat have a strong focus on use of the C-View image to accompany the 3D, so for those radiologists already performing Tomo HD or considering moving from the Combo HD mode to Tomo HD, this workshop will be beneficial.

Hologic 3D™ Biopsy, and Optimising VABB Workflow & Patient Comfort

A 45 minute workshop for Radiologists and Radiographers to explore new solutions for biopsy workflow using combinations of a new VABB system and the use of the Hologic Tomosynthesis guidance systems.

It features a lecture on clinical experiences, theoretical knowledge and the potential impact of using these different approaches to biopsy, on current clinical practice.

The hands on part of the workshop will cover the new VABB system in combination with the traditional upright biopsy technique - with and without a lateral arm device, using Hologic 3D™ breast biopsy guidance.

Each session is limited to 10 participants.

RANZCR CPD points apply.

HOLOGIC Contrast Enhanced Mammography: A Clinical Perspective

Hologic is offering a series of 1 hour presentations for Radiologists. Dr Daniela Bernardi, from Trento, Italy, will introduce a clinical perspective on the use of Contrast Enhanced 2D (CE2D) Mammography.

The session includes a brief lecture providing first-hand knowledge and experience in implementing CE2D in an actual clinical environment, followed by a faculty led review session with correlate ancillary imaging results.

Each session is limited to 15 participants.

RANZCR CPD points to apply.
