In this second of a 3 Part Series, Dr. Laurie Fajardo discusses the benefits of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) for detecting and diagnosing breast cancer and things to consider when planning or implementing DBT into breast imaging practices.

Dr. Fajardo discusses the importance of radiation dose reduction with synthetic 2D, reviews the published literature on the performance of synthetic 2D mammography, and shares how DBT can impact data storage and network data transmission across your PACS and enterprise system.

Educational Objectives:
At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the efficacy of synthetic 2D from DBT.
  • Implement procedures for managing DBT data volumes and workflow.
  • Develop an approach to interpreting DBT images.

Part 3 | DBT, Breast Density and Artificial Intelligence
Released: October 23, 2020 Expires: October 31, 2022 CE credits: 1.5 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Laurie L. Fajardo, MD
18976

In this final segment of this 3-part series, Dr. Laurie Fajardo addresses the radiologist’s challenges associated with dense breast imaging and interpretation through discussion and case presentation of interval breast cancer. This includes issues associated with assigning breast cancer risk to breast density and qualitative versus quantitative methods for assessing, and reporting breast density and risk assessment.

Further Dr. Fajardo will discuss how to incorporate breast cancer risk assessment into your breast imaging practice and closes the program with a discussion on the current impact of Artificial Intelligence on breast imaging and how it can enhance workflow.

Educational Objectives:
At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Articulate issues associated with assessing and reporting breast density and its associated cancer risk.
  • Explain the benefits of incorporating comprehensive risk assessment into breast imaging practices.
  • Implement the use of artificial intelligence to enhance breast imaging practice workflow and performance.

Pregnancy-associated Breast Cancer and Other Breast Disease: A Radiologic Review
Released: September 01, 2020 Expires: August 31, 2022 CE credits: 1.0 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Applied Radiology

Pregnancy associated breast cancer (PABC) is a subset of breast cancer that is typically diagnosed at more advanced stages and carries a worse prognosis. The physiological breast changes that occur during pregnancy and lactation can often make clinical and radiological evaluation difficult.

Ultrasound is the primary imaging modality in the evaluation of pregnancy associated breast lesions with high sensitivity and lack of radiation. Mammography is generally considered safe during pregnancy and lactation and may also be used to assess for PABC. Dynamic contrast enhanced breast MRI is not recommended during pregnancy; however, it may safely be performed in lactating women to evaluate extent of disease or for high risk screening.

This article reviews appropriate imaging evaluation of the pregnant or lactating woman, and showcases the imaging features of benign and malignant lesions occurring during pregnancy and lactation. Many benign lesions, including fibroadenoma and lactating adenoma, can mimic malignancy. New or growing solid masses occurring during pregnancy and lactation should be further evaluated with imaging and biopsy, to avoid a delay in a potential cancer diagnosis.

Synthetic 2D Mammography: The Roadmap for Interpreting Digital Breast Tomosynthesis
Released: November 30, 2021 Expires: November 29, 2023 CE credits: 1.0 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Laurie L. Fajardo, MD
19924
Dr. Laurie Fajardo will share her understanding of the benefits of synthetic 2D images with digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) for diagnosing breast cancer along with considerations for implementing Synthetic 2D breast imaging protocols into your practice. Following the presentation questions from the audience were addressed in a moderated Q&A session.

Learning Objectives

  • Implement digital breast tomosynthesis protocols in clinical practice.
  • Differentiate characteristics of synthetic 2D mammography by manufacturer.
  • Discuss differences between wide vs narrow angle DBT acquisition and its effect of angular range on synthetic-2D image generation.

This program is made possible through an unrestricted educational grant from FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation.

The Role of Digital Breast Tomosynthesis in Breast Cancer Screening, Diagnosis, and Continued Patient Management
Released: August 01, 2020 Expires: July 31, 2022 CE credits: 2.0 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Applied Radiology
18945

Digital breast tomosynthesis, also known as 3D DBT first entered the clinical arena in 2011 when the FDA approved its use. Multiple studies have since shown that tomosynthesis is effective in both the screening and the diagnostic setting. This technology has quickly emerged as a practice-changing standard by increasing both sensitivity and specificity, thereby improving breast cancer detection and the clinical accuracy of mammograms.

This Expert Forum educational program focuses on the impact of digital breast tomosynthesis and the role it plays in all aspects of breast screening. In this program, you will hear from an expert panel consisting of four (4) healthcare professionals from various specialties; who are all involved in the diagnosis, treatment and care of breast cancer patients and who will share their clinical insights and experience.

Educational Objectives:
At the completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the importance of breast screening mammography.
  • Compare the differences between 2D and 3D mammography.
  • Explain how the use of 3D DBT will benefit their patients.
  • Increase the collaboration between radiologists and referring physicians.
  • Implement best practices for concise communication across the continuum of care.
