The Breast Imaging and Intervention: A Comprehensive Review activity is an audio program with accompanying images on Video DVD and MP4 Digital Files that you can refer to as you listen to the program in the comfort of your home or office. It features key presentations on the most recent, clinically relevant findings, best practices and procedures and advances in breast imaging that are happening today. These developments include all the new techniques and protocols for producing the interpreting mammography examinations. The self-instructional format allows you to earn credits as your time permits.
This program is presented in four modules and contains:
- Audio content with charts, graphics, and radiologic images on Video DVD and MP4 Digital Files for quick and easy reference
- Information that can help you to fulfill your MQSA CME requirement while also giving you the ability to earn a maximum of 25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
- A greater focus on areas that are left unaddressed by other courses with tighter time constraints
- Online quizzes
- And more!

Mammography 10 credits; MRI 3.75 credits; Nuclear Medicine 1 credit; Digital Mammography 6 credits; Risk Management 5.5 credits.
Intended Audience: This course is intended for radiologists in academics or private practice. Radiologists involved in breast imaging and interventional procedures. Radiology technologists and nurses involved in breast imaging and intervention. Any physician (e.g. surgeons) working in the field of evaluation and treatment of breast disease who desires a more comprehensive understanding of the imaging aspects of evaluation.
- Recognize the mammographic and sonographic features of breast masses that distinguish between a likely benign or malignant origin.
- Discuss the relative strengths and limitations of different types of imaging including mammography, ultrasound, and MRI for probably benign breast lesions.
- Recognize the various methods and instruments available for percutaneous biopsy under stereotactic, ultrasound, and MR guidance.
- Explain the potential and limitations of alternative breast imaging techniques such as nuclear imaging techniques and physiologic rationales to imaging.
- Recognize and understand the different approaches toward image guided biopsy including limitations and potentials.
- Recognize the nature of different MRI techniques and the consequences of such modifications.
- Recognize the potentials and limitations of imaging surveillance as opposed to the need for biopsy.
