OBJECTIVES
1 to learn the underlying principle and imaging protocol of state-of-art CEM
2 to learn where, in preoperative staging of breast cancer, CEM would suffice and which indications and cases would remain to evaluate with breast MRI
3 to learn how CEM can be used as problem-solving modality, especially in women recalled from breast cancer screening, and
4 how to fully benefit from CEM in a dedicated clinical workflow.

OUTLINE
At our symposium we will review the principle on CEM and how to acquire and read state-of-art images using this approach. The key note lecture of Doctor Lobbes will mainly focus on the clinical implementation of CEM in everyday clinical practice, especially with respect to preoperative staging of breast cancer, including invasive lobular breast cancer, and the differences with breast MRI.
Also, Doctor Lobbes will discuss the ability of CEM as problem-solver in inconclusive findings at mammography and ultrasound, for example in women that were recalled from breast cancer screening.
As an example, Doctor Lobbes will share his experiences with ‘the Zuyderland Breast Center workflow’, in which CEM plays a pivotal role together with 24-hour pathology diagnosis, daily multidisciplinary tumour board meetings and a closely collaborating group of breast specialists.
