The Dutch Expert Centre for Screening (LRCB) is a knowledge driven organization that aims for optimal medical and physico-technical quality of screening programmes. Our experts both supervise and contribute. The LRCB controls and optimizes screening programs and skills of professionals through knowledge and training. In this way the LRCB continuously improves the quality of early detection and diagnosis, of breast cancer and tuberculosis.
The LRCB organises international courses in Breast Cancer Screening in cooperation with the EUSOBI.
During these highly interactive small-scale courses screening radiologists or radiologists with an interest in screening have the opportunity to update their knowledge and develop their mammography reading skills. Hands-on sessions play an important role, in which participants individually read screening examinations. Each reading session will be followed by an interactive discussion with the trainer and other participants. Guided by experts in the field of breast cancer screening, participants receive individual feedback on their reading skills during the course.
Furthermore, the programmes will incorporate a series of lectures by several experts in the field of radiology, pathology, breast positioning, epidemiology and physico-technical aspects of digital breast cancer screening.
