Breast Imaging Boot Camp

Earn up to 34.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 25 SAM Credits

This three-day course, led by Michael N. Linver, MD, FACR; and Christopher E. Comstock, MD, FACR, is designed to provide practicing radiologists with an intensive experience in breast imaging. Throughout the program, participants will develop their interpretive expertise in the evaluation of mammography studies by hands-on interpretation of over 240 digital screening and diagnostic mammograms at their own individual PACS digital workstation.

Specific instruction in the use and application of computer-aided techniques will also be provided. In addition, interventional workshops will be available in breast ultrasound and stereotactic biopsy.

Workstations: GE or Hologic

  5. Recognize diagnostic work-up of screen-detected findings and symptomatic patients
  6. Conduct interventional workshops for stereotactic and ultrasound guided biopsy

What Your Colleagues Are Saying


– Extremely helpful to have so many unknown cases, with so many different appearances and types of cancers, and with immediate feedback!!! Great learning tool! Thank you for all the hard work to put this together.

– This is the best hands-on learning experience out there!

– Best course ever! Great opportunity to work with the experts on a one-to-one basis who were all really friendly.

Certificate


Attendees who interpret a minimum of 240 digital mammography examinations will be awarded a Certificate of Proficiency stating the actual number of mammographic examinations read under the direct supervision of an interpreting physician, which will count towards meeting the physician interpretive requirements for MQSA qualification and certification maintenance.
