Breast Imaging in the Caribbean 2016

Penn Medicine-

Returning to the very popular Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, Dr. Emily Conant has designed this course for radiologists who interpret breast imaging full- or part-time. The course content will include up-to-date reviews of breast imaging fundamentals aimed at improving interpretative skills and diagnostic acumen in mammography, tomosynthesis, ultrasound, and MRI.

In addition to our Penn faculty, Drs. Conant and Weinstein, we are including two excellent guest speakers in this year's program. Lori Strachowski, MD, from University of California at San Francisco, is known for her excellence in teaching, especially her lectures on basic and advanced breast ultrasound. Connie Lehman, MD PhD, from University of Washington at Seattle, is known for her pioneering research on Breast MR and breast imaging appropriateness criteria. We are very pleased to have both of these stellar educators on our team for the 2016 Breast Imaging in the Caribbean.

This year's program includes a Stump the Stars session and we encourage you to send in challenging cases to test our faculty! Confirmed registrants will be sent more information in their confirmation letter.
