Improving Analysis of Breast Microcalcifications

Course Acceptance List Course Description And Objectives: Objectives Course Description Understand the complexity of breast cancer detection in this comprehensive course that goes into the dynamic interaction of computer-aided detection (CADe) systems and machine learning. Focusing on the crucial role of microcalcifications (MCs) in breast cancer prognosis, we explore innovative techniques like deep convolutional neural…

Deep Learning: Fracture Risk Assessment

Course Acceptance List Course Description And Objectives: Objectives Course Description This course explores the underutilization of Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) in measuring bone mineral density (BMD) and evaluating fracture risk. You will learn about an innovative automated tool designed to identify fractures, predict BMD, and assess fracture risk using plain radiographs. The course will examine…

Classification of Breast Masses

Course Acceptance List Course Description And Objectives: Objectives Course Description This course focuses on the use of deep learning techniques to detect and classify breast cancer, the most common cancer in women. It covers the worldwide public problem of cancer, with breast cancer having the highest incidence among women. The course emphasizes the importance of…

Metastatic Breast Cancer: Imaging Diagnosis

Course Acceptance List Course Description And Objectives: Objectives Course Description In this course understand the imaging modalities that may be used for the staging of women with advanced breast cancer. Learn the evidence behind the imaging modalities that characterize metastases in breast cancer. Learn why PET-CT may detect metastases with higher sensitivity than conventional imaging…

Modern Post-Mortem Imaging

Modern Post-Mortem Imaging

Course Acceptance List Course Description And Objectives: Objectives Course Description Our Modern post-mortem Imaging course investigates the use of an increasing number of digital imaging methods, which can be collected under the term “post-mortem imaging”. Most methods of forensic imaging are from the radiology field and are therefore techniques that show the interior of the…

Children with Rheumatic Disorders: Bone Health

Course Acceptance List Course Description And Objectives: Objectives Course Description Learn about bone metabolism and bone remodeling in children and how genetic factors significantly affect bone health, through their influence on bone cell function,  cartilage quality, calcium and vitamin D homeostasis, sex hormone metabolism and pubertal timing.  You will also learn about pediatric and secondary…

Magnetic Fields and Cancer

Course Acceptance List Course Description And Objectives: Objectives Course Description Understand the possible connection of magnetic fields and different types of cancers.  Humans are exposed to a complex mix of man-made electric and magnetic fields (MFs) at many different frequencies, at home and at work. Epidemiological studies indicate that there is a positive relationship between…

Atomic Bomb Radiation: In Utero Dose / Mortality

Course Acceptance List Course Description And Objectives: Objectives Course Description This course examines the effects of individuals that were in utero at the time of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 and how the radiation dose they received while in utero affected them later in life. How it affected in utero development,…

Contrast-Enhanced Mammography

Course Acceptance List Course Description And Objectives: Objectives Course Description This course discusses the current CEM technique and interpretation, compare the performance of this modality versus conventional breast imaging modalities (mammography, ultrasound, and MRI), provide a case-based review of common imaging findings and current applications in the literature, as well as analyze common challenges and…

Male Breast Cancer: Genetics and Management

Course Acceptance List Course Description And Objectives: Objectives Course Description Understand the rare disease of male breast cancer (MBC) with a specific focus on epidemiology and predisposing genes. The genetic and/or epigenetic alterations at the somatic level identify a subset of male breast cancer (MBC) that could differ from female breast cancer (FBC). This course…
