In this video and interactive case study series, experts in Breast MRI, Breast Ultrasound and Breast Tomosynthesis (3D Mammography) present what you need to know to improve patient care. View breast tomosynthesis case presentations and what you need to know to implement breast tomosynthesis in your practice.

Breast MRI tips and techniques are shared by Steven Harms MD, pioneer in the art and science of breast MRI. He distills his vast experience over two decades: practical diagnostic approach, expanding applications, interventional MRI, and MRI biopsy technique.

Breast ultrasound diagnosis and intervention experience is concisely presented by experts who build on the radiologist’s general knowledge to focus on a practical, efficient problem-solving approach for the growing role in breast diagnosis imaging, and ultrasound biopsy technique.

Topics also include: the fundamentals of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), DBT image manipulation & interpretation, practical issues that you, the radiologist, need to know to implement DBT, and what's new in the BI-RADS™ Atlas Fifth Edition.
