Workshops Abstract

Differentiating DBT implementation in assessment mammography (advanced) - Dr. Anna Russo

This interactive session begins by covering various clinical scenarios where the selection of different DBT sweep angles and views would be the most appropriate based on patient history and symptoms.
An experienced breast radiologist will provide detailed explanation on the implementation of tomosynthesis and Tomoguided biopsy in a clinical environment.

Contrast enhanced digital mammography as an adjunct to MRI - Dr. Anna Russo

Though digital mammography (FFDM) has improved contrast resolution and dynamic range, it still appears to exhibit weaker performance in dense breasts. This workshop will discuss how Contrast Enhanced Digital Mammography (CEDM) may represent a further improvement in cancer detection rate; similar to other contrast-enhanced techniques such MRI, overcoming the performance limitations of 2D that are due to overlapping tissue.

Integrating tomosynthesis into your breast imaging practice - Prof. Laurie Fajardo

This session will present challenging cases that highlight: (1) The advantages of tomosynthesis for screening and diagnostic mammography (2) Recent improvements to tomosynthesis image acquisition (3) Approaches to challenging tomosynthesis findings, such as, subtle and single view lesions, radial scars and lobular cancers, etc. (4) AND, future controversies such as, how tomosynthesis use may change if abbreviated breast MRI becomes a “mainstream” screening exam for intermediate and average risk women.
Learning Objectives:
(1)   Understand the advantages of tomosynthesis use for screening and diagnostic scenarios
(2)   Understand new developments in digital breast tomosynthesis imaging

Impact of contrast enhanced mammography on the workflow and economics in breast cancer institutes - Prof. Rasha Mohamed Kamal

Health-care providers are mainly concerned with developing appropriate strategies to resolve the conflict between the demands for providing high quality diagnostic services to breast patients and economic efficiency. In today's cost-conscious environment, even ‘New Breast Imaging Technologies’ that have the potential to improve breast cancer detection and diagnosis, may become questionable if they necessitate additional investments in buying new equipment, training, setting-up specific places to allocate new machines, and adding extra material to be used in diagnosis.
The continuous development of new technologies in the field of breast imaging brings about changes in the workflow resulting in a positive or negative influence on the productivity of breast imaging Units. On the other hand, the change in the workflow raises concerns as regards some economic constraints concerning the impact of these technologies on the time, on the costs and on patient management. In this workshop the impact of adding contrast enhanced mammography in the diagnostic work-up of breast patients on the workflow in breast cancer institutes will be discussed in respect to the time, the costs and the patient management.

Modern Breast Imaging Techniques; recent updates - Prof. Rasha Mohamed Kamal

In the last decade we have witnessed the emergence of a new era in breast imaging with the development of new technologies and upgraded applications of already existing ones. This is due to the strong evidence that the only way to curtail breast cancer is by coupling early detection together with a proper diagnosis in order to be able to give the patients the most appropriate treatment options. 
Mammography was and still remains the first line defense against breast cancer, yet, it was always accused of having some technical limitations. Many studies have reported both a low sensitivity and a low specificity of mammography. These limitations were the driving force behind repeated attempts to upgrade existing mammography technologies and develop newer ones proposing enhanced detection and diagnosis of breast cancer. One of these technologies is the 3D Digital breast Tomosynthesis which was expected to resolve many of the tissue overlap reading problems of mammography. 
Tomosynthesis provides enhanced morphology assessment, yet, it provides no functional information. For this reason, contrast enhanced mammography has been introduced in the field of breast imaging being capable of providing additional functional information through the injection of contrast media. In this workshop 3D Digital Tomosynthesis and Contrast Enhanced Mammography will be discussed from indications to interpretation.
