EUSOBI Mammography & beyond Course 2019

February 25-26, 2019
Vienna, Austria

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI), we would like to cordially invite you to a new course edition on Mammography & beyond. The course will take place in Vienna, Austria, from February 25-26, 2019.

The EUSOBI Mammography & beyond Course aims to give a thorough overview of different Mammography (MG) based techniques like tomosynthesis, contrast enhanced MG, synthetic MG and CT of the breast. Beside fundamental technical considerations, results of different ongoing clinical trials will be presented and training on different MG based techniques will be provided. Theoretical lectures will be enhanced by hands-on workshops on systems provided by different vendors. The course has limited access in order to ensure that each participant has the possibilty to work with different MG based techniques.

We are expecting a considerable amount of interest in this new course edition and with attendance limited to 120 participants per course, we will be operating on a ‘first come, first served basis’.

We hope you will take the valuable opportunity to join us, and we look forward to meeting you in February.

With kind regards,
Prof.Dr. Thomas H. Helbich
Dr. Alexandra Athanasiou
Dr. Eva M. Fallenberg
Prof. Ruud M. Pijnappel
Dr. Sophia Zackrisson
