Spectrum of Clustered Ring Enhancement (CRE) on Breast MRI: Malignancies and their Mimics

  • 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
  • Sona A. Chikarmane, MD

Clustered ring enhancement (CRE) was recently added to the 5th edition of the BI-RADS Atlas as one of four internal enhancement patterns (IEP). We are challenged to clarify this distinction in practice.  Dr. Chikarmane describes her systematic approach to these related phenomena.  She shares her insight and experience, tempered by the literature, by using select practical illustrations intended to show key distinctions among findings.

Breast MRI: Quick and Easy

  • 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
  • Steven Harms, MD

Dr. Harms, a breast MRI pioneer, arguably has the most extended high volume experience with dedicated breast MRI. He shares his experience, including the rationale and examples as he drops a pearl. Share his workstation as he scrolls through workflows, discusses findings, and guides toward efficient, effective practice. The video enables you to back up and repeat as you please. 


MRI of Women with Silicone Augmentation

  • 1.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
  • Steven Harms, MD

A pioneer in developing MRI for breast imaging, Dr. Harms maintains a practical clinical perspective with vast clinical experience with every complication over four decades of breast MRI practice. A  technology leader, he weighs alternative clinical pathways that the radiologist can adapt according to local capabilities and individual patient needs. This presentation is likely the definitive current teaching on this topic.


Contrast Enhanced Mammography: Techniques and Indication

  • 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • Azadeh Elmi, MD

This course is designed to provide radiologists with an understanding of Contrast-Enhanced Mammography (CEM) technique and physics and to discuss algorithms for the interpretation of CEM studies. Participants will compare the statistical performance of CEM versus conventional breast imaging modalities (mammography, ultrasound, and MRI). A cased-based review of common imaging findings will be presented, and an appropriate Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) Lexicon will be discussed. Lastly, common challenges and pitfalls in CEM interpretation will be explored.

MRI Case Conference

  • 1.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
  • Steven Poplack, MD, FACR, FSBI

Dr. Poplack shares cases selected from his vast experience. He leads us through the findings and thought process with multimodality options. Strict conformity with BI-RADS ® conventions elucidates nuances of management for the patient’s benefit for appropriate breast conservation.


Breast MRI in Benign Breast Disease

  • 1.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
  • Steven Harms, MD

Dr. Steven Harms, a pioneer of MRI of the breast, helps us diagnose benign breast disease to minimize false positives.  Share his sessions at his workstation and workflows as he navigates efficient workflows, and narrates his thought processes, while clearly teaching the technical rationale for image processing approaches.


Breast MRI: Full, Abbreviated, and Ultrafast

  • 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • Haydee Ojeda-Fournier, MD

This course is designed to provide radiologists with an in-depth understanding of breast MR techniques and protocols. Participants will review the basics of breast MR, including indications for appropriate use, abbreviated protocol, and ultrafast protocol.

DCIS: How MRI Helps

  • 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
  • Steven Harms, MD

DCIS remains a management problem in breast disease. Although management recommendations have not stabilized, MRI can now improve diagnosis and predictive value.  Dr. Harms, a pioneer in the development of MRI of the Breast, offers seasoned judgment of the spotty initial MRI data on DCIS. He then reviews specific current improvements in technology to improve the sensitivity with improved resolution and interpretive criteria, with illustrative examples showing recent technical contributions to diagnosis, with insight into the wide spectrum and emerging information on the predictive value of the diagnosis.


Breast Diffusion Weighted Imaging

  • 0.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
  • Rebecca Rakow-Penner, MD

This course is designed to provide radiologists with an in-depth understanding of diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) and its applications in breast cancer screening, staging, and treatment monitoring. Participants will learn the basics of DWI and how to optimize MRI scanning parameters for breast diffusion imaging. The course will also explore the challenges of breast diffusion imaging and potential solutions.
