Course Description And Objectives:

Objectives

  • Learn how local and whole-body staging is crucial for breast cancer treatment. 
  • Understand why whole-body-MRI/hybrid imaging is increasingly performed for distant staging. 
  • Gain a better understanding why PET-CT may detect metastases with higher sensitivity than conventional imaging. 
  • Learn how WBMRI also plays a role in the detection of visceral and skeletal involvement. 

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 and why whole-body-MRI/hybrid imaging is increasingly performed for distant staging.
