Digital Breast Tomosynthesis with Dr. Ojeda-Fournier Haydee Ojeda-Fournier, MD After a brief overview, Dr. Ojeda-Fournier systematically shares her seasoned experience through examples: detecting cancer, and making such points as reducing callback for cysts and fibroadenomas. She also illustrates limitations to DBT.
2-D Mammography Synthesized from Tomosynthesis: Strengths, Pitfalls, Artifacts Sona A. Chikarmane, MD In addition to reviewing artifacts on SM versus field digital mammography, Dr. Chikarmane also explores the weaknesses of SM and highlights the strengths.
Breast MRI Bootcamp Susan C. Harvey, MD A concise, yet comprehensive review of the basics, emphasizing precise use of current BI-RADS ® descriptors, with applications.
Spectrum of Clustered Ring Enhancement (CRE) on Breast MRI: Malignancies and their Mimics Sona A. Chikarmane, MD She shares her insight and experience, tempered by the literature, by using select practical illustrations intended to show key distinctions among findings.
Breast MRI: Evolution to Current Cases Robert Jared Weinfurtner MD MRI is highly effective in screening high-risk patients. Dr. Weinfurtner provides the background you need and shows you how to interpret your examinations in a clinical context.
Name that Enhancement: Characteristic Patterns of Residual Disease Seen on Breast MRI in Post-Lumpectomy Patients with Positive Surgical Margins Sujay Sheth, MD In managing patients with positive margins after lumpectomy it may be appropriate in current practice to use MRI to assess residual disease and plan for further management. Dr. Sheth discusses MR findings in such patients.
Breast Ultrasound with Dr. Gundry Kathleen Gundry, MD The Role of Breast Ultrasound, presented by Kathleen Gundry, MD, focuses on significant, practical techniques of ultrasound and BI-Rads findings on ultrasound.

Breast Ultrasound with Dr. Harvey Susan C. Harvey, MD A concise, yet comprehensive review of the basics, emphasizing precise use of BI-RADS ® descriptors, with applications.
Breast Biopsy: Techniques and Tips Nancy Murphy MD Dr. Murphy shares practical experience, focusing on efficient use of ultrasound in breast biopsy. She shows you how, and details equipment and patient comfort measures.
Interventional Techniques with Ultrasound, Stereotactic and MR Guidance Haydee Ojeda-Fournier, MD Mandatory qualifications and crucial tips and techniques are included for Ultrasound, Stereotactic and MRI modalities
What is new in BI-RADS 5th Edition Haydee Ojeda-Fournier, MD Dr. Ojeda-Fournier uses clinical images and management tables to teach the precise use of the BI-RADS to improve your patient care.
Medical Legal Aspects of Breast Imaging: Practical Advice for Interpretation Kathleen Gundry, MD With prevalent examples, interesting statistics, and practical solutions, this program gives you the knowledge and insight you need to prevent malpractice.
The Altered Breast Kathleen Gundry, MD Dr. Gundry explains breast changes due to reduction, cosmetic augmentation, or post treatment reconstruction.
Optional free add on:
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.
