  2. Learn imaging protocols and techniques to produce high quality breast MR images in keeping with current recommended standards
  3. Accurately and efficiently interpret and report on breast MR exams in accordance with the ACR BI-RADS® MRI module
  4. Use breast MRI guided biopsy tools effectively and safely

What Your Colleagues Are Saying


– Love the format of the course with lectures and ton of cases to work through. Far and away the most productive CME I’ve done.

– The format utilized at the Education Center is, hands down, the most effective way to learn and far superior to standard review courses.

– Outstanding program! Very valuable training and experience. Definitely worth the cost.

– Great course! Good mix of real cases, lectures and access to experts. Far more fruitful than purely lecture-based CME courses. Would definitely return for another course topic in the future.
