ISMRM Workshop on Breast MRI
in affiliation with EUSOBI and SBI
September 10-13, 2018
Vdara Hotel & Spa, Las Vegas, NV, USA
The high-risk patient enigma
The ECR Master Class 2018 focused on high risk lesions. Dr. Gábor Forrai’s (Budapest, HU) talk was about breast high risk lesions, including their pathologic and radiologic features. He underlined the importance of the preoperative multidisciplinary meeting as a necessary step in the flow-chart of high risk lesions, considering the First International Consensus Conference in Zurich in 2016 as reference for many recommendations for therapy and follow-up.
Rethinking ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)
Dr. Matthew Wallis (Cambridge, UK) during the refresh course on “Rethinking ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)” at ECR 2018 presented the importance of setting up a “no treatment trial” in order to manage the rising number of “over-diagnosis” for DCIS.
Artificial intelligence and radiology: a perfect match?
Dr. Michael Forsting (Essen, DE), during the special focus session on “artificial intelligence and radiology” at ECR 2018 discussed where artificial intelligence could improve radiology.
Artificial intelligence (AI) currently uses deep learning, a set of algorithms in machine learning that attempts to model high-level abstractions in data by using model architectures composed of multiple non-linear transformations.
- Exchange knowledge and scientific and technical information
- Uniform training programmes in breast imaging for European (and Non-European) radiologists and professionals
- Support and improve research and training
- Organise scientific meetings and events to ensure a continuous education in breast imaging
- Bring people together
- Improve information to women
The European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI) is a non-political and non-profit society with the solely and main goal to support the medical field of breast imaging in the widest sense of the word.
EUSOBI is dedicated to support research and education of the best actual screening, diagnostic and interventional practice within the European breast radiology community and beyond – as well as to publicise these methods to patients.
Membership of the society is open to all European (and Non-European) radiologists and professionals, who have an interest in any aspect of breast imaging.
Please find below upcoming EUSOBI events as well as other breast related meetings which could be of interest to you:
EUSOBI Breast MRI Training Course 2018.1
Over the course of 2 days, European experts in breast MRI are delivering lessons covering state-of-the-art technical options, image interpretation and reporting, and clonical indications, designed to increase knowledge, skills and confidence levels when applying this technique, as well as leading workshop sessions to discuss clinical cases.
St. Julians, Malta | Organizer: European Society of Breast Imaging
Oncologic Imaging Course 2018
Those involved in the field of oncologic imaging are experiencing a time of increasing pressure, stress and change. The demand for efficiency and effectiveness in all oncologic imaging matters is constantly growing. OIC addresses current challenges and provides a forum for education and the exchange of ideas and concepts. The course furthermore deals with supportive methods and techniques so the delegates will leave with new ideas for their day-to-day practice. OIC involves lectures, workshops, interactive case discussions and panel discussions.
Dubrovnik, Croatia | Organizer: European Society of Oncologic Imaging (ESOI)
3rd Nijmegen Advanced Breast Imaging Course (NABIC)
An advanced level course in breast imaging, with a specific focus on clinical applicability. The course aims at breast radiologists and other physicians dedicated to breast care, residents, medical physicists, nursing specialists and dedicated technicians.
Nijmegen, The Netherlands | Organizer: Radboud University Medical Center
Breast MRI: Advancing the State of the Art
This workshop aims to gather technical and clinical experts in the field of MRI in breast cancer diagnosis and management. The advantages and shortcomings of the current techniques used in breast MRI will be discussed, as well as new and emerging approaches in the era of precision medicine, such as radiomics, radiogenomics, and big data. Other topics of discussion include correlation of MR imaging findings to epi-/ genomic, proteomic, transcriptomic and metabolomic information, and quantitative biomarkers for breast MRI. Newer applications such as IVIM, HP-MRI, DWI, DTI, multi-nuclei MRS, and elastography will also be presented.
