CONFERENCE OVERVIEW
The 2019 Chicago International Breast Course (CIBC) will offer training using cutting-edge technology with an advanced but practical approach. The three-day conference will cover breast imaging modalities comprehensively, including digital breast tomosynthesis, handheld and automated whole breast US, fast-sequence MRI, and molecular breast imaging. Course topics include breast cancer screening and high-risk management controversies, quality and safety, patient engagement, clinical practice concerns, and the use of AI in breast image interpretation. Hands-on workshops that focus on performance and interpretation of handheld and automated whole breast US, elastography, and DBT-guided biopsy will enable attendees to be more confident in embracing these new techniques.
