eLearning Breast MRI

Presenter: Dr Lale Umutlu, Institute of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology and Neuroradiology, University Hospital Essen, Germany

Key Features and Techniques

Leading radiology professionals from five very different locations share their thoughts about coping with patient numbers, shifting expertise to rural areas, and becoming internationally visible.

MRI of the breast has an increasingly important role in routine clinical practice, offering excellent sensitivity for lesion detection and high specificity for lesion characterization. This four-part eLearning webinar includes structured presentations by Dr Umutlu on selected topics:

PART 1

Indications and Applications -

Introduces the specific advantages of MRI relative to other imaging techniques for morphological and functional imaging of breast lesions.

Duration: 12:32 min

 

PART 2

Techniques –

Reviews the technical specifications for MRI, the role of contrast agents, and the protocols for optimal performance.

Duration: 12:08 min

 

PART 3

Reporting and Reading –

Describes the role of breast MRI for staging breast cancer and for therapy monitoring.

Duration: 14:12 min

 

PART 4

Breast MRI Case Studies –

Presents and interprets five real-world examples of particular interest.

Duration: 4:35 min
