EUSOBI recommendations for breast imaging and cancer diagnosis during and after the COVID-19 pandemic

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has led to a sudden disruption of routine medical care affecting all aspects of breast imaging. Early breast cancer can be fatal if left untreated, so adequate and timely treatment is still required in these circumstances.
It is well-known that early detection contributes to decrease in breast cancer specific mortality. In women at average risk breast cancer grows relatively slowly and a short delay in screening (e.g. 6–12 weeks) will not adversely affect overall outcomes from this disease.
Dear colleagues and friends,
In light of the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak and after careful evaluation of its potential impact on the planned EUSOBI Annual Scientific Meeting 2020 in Malmö, Sweden from October 1-3, it is with regret to inform you about the decision that EUSOBI 2020 will not go ahead as a physical meeting this year.
This decision is based not only on the current situation, but also on the uncertainty we all face regarding the months to come. The safety and well-being of our members, faculty, friends and the entire community is of utmost importance and as such this heavy-hearted decision was necessary. The value of our Annual Scientific Meeting relies on our community and EUSOBI wants to guarantee a safe and outstanding meeting, which seems to be impossible for the moment. We feel that this is the socially responsible decision, in view of the on-going concerns related to the communal health risks posed by large gatherings and the need for continued social distancing.

The European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI) is a non-political and non-profit society with the main goal of supporting 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.
