Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the European Society of Breast Imaging, we are happy to announce the 4th edition of our Diagnostic and Interventional Breast Ultrasound Course which will take place in Vienna, Austria, from February 26-27, 2024.

Over the course of 2 days, European experts in breast ultrasound will:

  • emphasize the basic principles of interpreting and reporting breast ultrasound examinations;
  • deliver interactive case-based US-BI-RADS workshops;
  • provide an extended, in-depth review of best practices in breast imaging with ultrasound;
  • present hot topics and emerging applications;
  • utilize interactive teaching as well as problem-solving case presentation.
  • employ workshops to allow hands-on experience of automated 3D Ultrasound, US-guided biopsy, lesion localization and minimal invasive therapy of breast lesions.

The course directors of the EUSOBI Diagnostic and Interventional Breast Ultrasound Course are looking forward to welcoming you!

Yours sincerely,
Prof.Dr. Michael Fuchsjäger

It is for the audience to determine whether the presenter’s external interest may reflect a possible bias in either the work carried out or the conclusions presented.

CME Accreditation

The EUSOBI Diagnostic and Interventional Breast Ultrasound Course 2024, Vienna, Austria 26/02/2024 – 27/02/2024, has been
accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 13.5 European CME
credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the
educational activity.

Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at https://edhub.ama-assn.org/pages/applications.

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be
Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College
of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Due to UEMS regulations, attendees can only claim CME credits for the sessions/workshops that have actually been attended during the event. You will need to evaluate each session that you attended and would like to receive credits for on the event evaluation form. As part of this process participants’ attendance will be monitored throughout the event.

OEGUM/DEGUM Certification

The EUSOBI Diagnostic and Interventional Breast Ultrasound Course 2024 is certified by the Austrian and German Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine, ÖGUM and DEGUM.

Documents

Confirmation of attendance and CME certificates will be made available to the participants via the EUSOBI ePortal once the course has finished. The latter (CME certificates) will only be issued once the online evaluation form including first and last name has been completed. Documents like confirmation of attendance and CME certificates will be saved in your EUSOBI ePortal documents area.
