Breast Imaging Conference to Explore Diagnosis & Management of Breast Diseases

New technologies have the potential to change the way we approach, diagnose, and manage breast diseases. For example, researchers from the Lawson Institute in London, Ontario have been investigating whether digital breast tomosynthesis, a type of 3D imaging, can better detect abnormalities in breast tissue compared to conventional 2D mammograms. A trial is currently taking place at over 100 centres across Canada, the United States, and Argentina.[1] The 2020 Toronto Breast Imaging Conference will explore these kinds of new developments, with a focus on the use of multimodality imaging and intervention for the diagnosis of breast diseases. Case-based discussions will review the appropriateness of imaging tests, while special focus sessions will address controversies and current evidence for screening guidelines. Topics will include:
  • Screening & Updates
  • Reconstructed Breast
  • Diagnostic
  • Overdiagnosis and Staging
This 1-day conference will take place on Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. Radiologists, technologists, radiology trainees, surgeons, pathologists, advanced nurse practitioners, and oncology trainees are encouraged to attend.
