Radiology continues to be an evolving and critical aspect in the screening and diagnosis of disease utilized by a range of healthcare professionals. As such, it is crucial for technologists, surgeons, pathologists, advanced nurse practitioners and other specialists to keep abreast of how its applications can improve patient outcomes. To this end, The Department of Medical Imaging and CPD are once again partnering to bring a selection of exciting programs beginning this Spring.
On April 21, the Toronto Breast Imaging Conference will convene at the Women’s College Hospital Conference Centre.

Renowned breast radiologist, Dr. Sujata Ghate of Duke University, will be delivering this year’s keynote as well as several discussions on topics ranging from breast reconstruction, lymph nodes and the nipple areola complex.
