Breast Imaging Courses in the Online Learning Center
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the RSNA Online Learning Center is highlighting top-quality breast imaging refresher courses from RSNA 2022.
• Challenging Breast Cases: A Game Show – USA Versus Europe - This high-energy session pits two teams against each other in a game show-style competition that delivers a step-by-step look at imaging and diagnostic considerations of a series of challenging breast cases.
• Challenging Cases in Breast Imaging - Go beyond the basics and delve into several difficult cases in diagnostic and interventional breast imaging. Sharpen your skills to improve diagnostic ability and improve patient care by avoiding delayed diagnoses.
• Management of Elevated Risk (high-risk) Breast Lesions - Histological uncertainty of high-risk breast lesions leads to diagnostic challenges, more complicated decision making and the potential for overtreatment. This session explores definitions of risk, the radiology-pathology connection and differences in management approaches across the globe.
• RSNA Breast Imaging Radigories - Based on the Jeopardy! game show format, this unique course presents a game board with categories and a range of point values. Play to earn the most points as you test your diagnostic and interventional breast imaging knowledge.
