Description:

Keynote Speaker: Daniel B. Kopans MD MGH - Inventor of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis

Experts demonstrate the use of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) 3D Mammography to reduce call back and increase breast cancer detection. Learn to read DBT studies with guided interpretation of interesting cases. Contents also include information needed to introduce tomosynthesis to round out the education.

Studio mastered tomosynthesis case presentations include seen only on DBT masses & calcifications, invasive ductal carcinoma, lobular carcinoma, clarification of suspicious regions at screening, impact on call back, workflow case reviews, tomosynthesis warm-up cases, and BI-RADS™ 4/5 cases. This video series includes 40 interesting video case presentations.

Satisfy MQSA/ FDA System Specific Initial Training : "Under MQSA, there are currently not one, but three different DBT modalities. MQSA defines a mammographic modality as “a technology for radiography of the breast.” As of April 2015, three DBT systems have been approved for marketing in the United States: Hologic Selenia Dimensions, GE SenoClaire, and Siemens Mammomat Inspiration. Due to the technological differences between these DBT systems, and differences in their FDA-approved Indications for Use (IFU), each manufacturer’s DBT system is currently treated as a separate mammographic modality under the MQSA definition. Facilities that perform mammography using any of these DBT modalities are subject to MQSA requirements."(fda.gov)

CME for interpreting physicians:

Earn 8.75 AMA PRA Category I Credits™ in Breast Tomosynthesis CME toward your initial 8 hour training; applies also toward the 6 hour recurring CME in tomosynthesis for MQSA. ( FDA Reference: 900.12(a)(1)(ii)(C) and  900.12(a)(1)(ii)(B). )

Initial training for interpreting physicians:

This program provides compliance cme and system specific documentation to include in facility records for MQSA inspection.

Meets or exceeds one or more of the following options for your MQSA compliance:

  • 8 hours of training in general DBT topics, plus training in the unique features of the specific DBT system they will use; or
  • 8 hours of training in one specific DBT system they will use; or
  • 8 hours of training in one DBT system, plus training in the unique features of another DBT system prior to independent use of that other system.

Details and FAQ available at www.modalitytraining.com.

Ensure that your CME and training requirements are documented without the time pressure and commitments of onsite courses. In addition to DBT CME and DBT training, the program committee recommends that physicians new to DBT participate in hands on training on DBT workstation (s) prior to independent clinical interpretation.
