CESM Full Immersion. A theoretical and practical course. 5th ed.
In recent times CESM (contrast enhanced
spectral mammography) has aroused a growing
interest among breast radiologists proving to be a
pioneering and very promising new tool in the early
diagnosis of breast cancer.
Our aim is to provide physicians with a interactive
environment to learn and share knowledge and
views about CESM in a creative and engaging
setting in the beautiful city of Florence.
During this 2-days course partecipants will receive
notions on CESM acquisition technique, step-bystep
imaging interpretation and report writing, as
well as additional findings management, focusing
on ultrasound (US), tomosynthesis and post-
CESM second look ultrasound examinations.
Eventually, prone stereotactic tomo-guided bioptic
approaches and US-guided biopsies (core biopsy)
will be performed on CESM findings to complete
the diagnostic procedures.
Additionally, trainees will participate in interactive
case-based discussions at workstations reviewing
some of the most significant examinations drawn
from our department database which consists of
more than 5000 CESM examinations performed
over the last six years.
