Course Description

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT) has become increasingly common in breast imaging practices and is a well-established improvement over standard full-field digital mammography (FFDM) for detecting breast cancer. Understanding the imaging appearances of classic findings on DBT improves accuracy and confidence in your daily interpretation. 

In this course, Dr. Ryan Woods (University of Wisconsin-Madison) reviews several topics related to Tomosynthesis, including imaging acquisition techniques, screening and diagnostic performance, and CAD/AI applications.

Learn alongside Dr. Woods as he walks through classic tomosynthesis cases you may run into in your daily practice. Dr. Woods shares tips and tricks on how he approaches DBT cases, including lesion localization, common artifacts, architectural distortion, and the challenges of calcifications on tomo.

This course will prepare you to confidently approach a variety of findings seen on screening mammograms using Tomosynthesis, including: 

  • Dermal calcifications, Pseudocalcifications
  • Asymmetries and masses 
  • Gynecomastia
  • Fat containing lesions (Lipoma, Hamartoma, Fat Necrosis)
  • Locally Advanced Breast Carcinoma
  • Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC)
  • Invasive Lobular Carcinoma (ILC)
  • …and more!

The course also highlights important considerations when reviewing DBT cases in male patients and also different patient settings, including post-breast reduction, post-radiation, post-lumpectomy, and silicone injections.

Optimize your learning:

  • Review at your own paceReminder to utilize the video player features to speed up or slow down the video, pause or rewind to best fit your available time and learning needs
  • Learn alongside Dr. WoodsWe suggest viewing the video in full screen (or collapse the left navigation to make the screen bigger) while you watch Dr. Woods review the cases
