Hologic's Workshops

The objective of this 90 minutes workshop is to provide participants a basic knowledge of contrast mammography and give an introduction to specifics of CEDM images through a selection of cases with training value. After a presentation of the technology and current published evidence the workshop will focus on case review. The participant will be given the opportunity to review selected cases and discuss these as part of the interactive session of the workshop.

Available slots:
Thursday, October 11, 16:30-18:00
Friday, October 12, 12:00-13:30
Saturday, October 13, 14:30-16:00

Room MC3


Hologic's Workshops


This one hour workshop focus on the use of Vacuum Assisted Breast Biopsy (VABB) with real-time imaging in conjunction with Tomosynthesis guidance. After an introductory lecture the participant will be given the opportunity for a live hand-on experience with prone biopsy guidance and upright biopsy guidance. The lecture part of the workshop will cover both theoretical and practical aspect of VABB real-time imaging with Tomosynthesis guidance. The trainer will also share personal experience in an interactive environment. The practical interactive hands-on part of the workshop will allow participants to use VABB real-time imaging and Tomosynthesis guidance equipment. The learning environment in small groups will allow the participants to get a good understanding of the technologies, the potential use in their clinical practices and how to address challenges with potential changes to clinical practices.

Available slots:

Friday, October 12, 09:30-10:30

Friday, October 12, 15:30-16:30

Hologic's Workshops


The objective of this 90 minutes Tomosynthesis with synthesized 2D workshop is to address the clinical challenges faced by experienced Tomosynthesis users and provide a variety of solutions in the form of tips and tricks based on clinical cases selected, to illustrate each of the presented challenges. To ensure optimal conditions for participants the number of people per reading workstation will be limited to two. Participants attending this workshop are expected to have experience in using Tomosynthesis. During this hands-on workshop, using an advanced mammography workstation, the participants will review cases that cover key topics such as reading time, one-view only lesions, localization discrepancy and subtle distortions. The final diagnosis and the teaching value of the cases will be discussed.

Available slots:
Thursday, October 11, 14:30-16:00
Friday, October 12, 10:00-11:30
Saturday, October 13, 12:00-13:30

Hologic's Workshops

This 90 minutes hands-on reading workshop on high-resolution Tomosynthesis with synthesized 2D is intended for radiologists interested in learning more about this breast cancer screening and diagnosis technology. The workshop is composed of a short introductory lecture followed by hands-on reading of selected cases. The workshop will include an interactive discussion of the presented cases in a learning oriented setup with maximum two participants per reading workstation.

Available slot:
Friday, October 12, 16:00-17:30

It is our great pleasure to invite you to our Annual Meeting, which will take place in Athens, Greece from October 11-13, 2018. This year’s meeting is extended to 2,5 days and for the first time it will start with three pre-congress courses, providing a thorough update on case-based BI-RADS classification, interventional procedures and B3 lesions.

As in the past years, our meeting will be preceded by our special Breast MRI course.

This year’s meeting is organised in collaboration with the Hellenic Society of Breast Imaging, with active participation of Greek pathologists, breast surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists, who will participate in a case based MDT session.

We are highly appreciative, all of the positive feedback we received from over 800 participants, complimenting on the professional level and friendly atmosphere of last year’s Berlin meeting. We have tried to take into account all of your feedback and recommendations in planning this year’s scientific programme.

The highlights of this year’s Athens meeting will feature:
  • Tomosynthesis in screening/diagnostic settings
  • Advanced/ multiparametric ultrasound
  • New Trending Topics in MRI
  • The role of breast radiologist as a therapist
  • Artificial intelligence and evidence-based imaging

What is more, we hope to attract more young radiologists with an interest to breast diagnostics as an audience and possible future members of the EUSOBI Young Club. Members of the Young Club should not miss the EYC Symposium, which will take place the morning after the Annual Scientific Meeting, on October 14, 2018.

Finally, we would like to invite you to our prestigious Evening Event at the Restaurant of the Museum of Acropolis, preceded by a guided tour in the rooms of this world famous museum. Join us on Thursday, October 11, and experience an unforgettable evening in Athens.
