Dr Daniel B. Kopans, inventor of 3-D Breast Tomosynthesis, keynotes faculty presentations toward saving lives by screening for breast cancer. He first engages the arguments that would both restrict screening, and distort the concept of overdiagnosis. He equips every professional who cares for women with high quality evidence and critical thinking needed to inform patients. He also introduces the principles and advantages of the 3-D tomosynthesis mammography technology as the most important improvement in breast imaging now entering practice.
Other pioneers in clinical application illustrate practical essentials in interpretation, for sustainable practice, and for quality assurance.
Steven Harms MD, pioneer both in the art and in the science of breast MRI, shares a vast experience, distilled for practical clinical utility.
Diagnostic and reporting approach, expanding applications and interventional MRI are highlighted, along with presentations on MRI applications for personalized screening, surveillance, and team management practice.
Concise breast ultrasound refresher, and intervention experience refines a focus on practical, efficient problem-solving by for the growing role of US in breast diagnosis and biopsy guidance.
“What you need to know” presentations emphasize informing for the shared needs of the entire breast care team. Communication via the BI-RADS®, update on current best care approaches, and practical understanding of the breast care team (radiologist, surgeon, pathologist, and oncologist. ) roles are fundamental for efficient and effective personalized care.
Quality and accountability in mammography comes direct from the ACR: latest BI-RADS®, practice accreditation, and centers of excellence, and other initiatives are presented. This work, in harmony with the FDA and other regulators, sets a benchmark for other medical specialties to emulate in improving patient care.
Activity elements apply for 11.75 hours in 3D Breast Tomosynthesis - Satisfy MQSA/ FDA initial training requirements for Breast Tomosynthesis.

The 30-year Effort to Deny Women Access to Mammography Screening Daniel B. Kopans MD Without screening, there is little reason to image the breast. Tomosynthesis and other improvements depend on appropriate screening. Dr. Kopans presents the evidence you need to know for the American Cancer Society and ACR screening mammography recommendations, compared with controversial new guidelines that may restrict mammography, the only test for breast cancer that is proven to save lives in randomized controlled trials.
