Siemens Healthineers (Erlangen, Germany) offered comprehensive hands-on reading in 3D breast ultrasound, breast tomosynthesis and breast MRI to visitors at the 103rd scientific assembly and annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). The interactive sessions enabled the participants to review cases on dedicated breast workstations during 60 minute sessions led by breast imaging experts.

Throughout the interactive hands-on session, participants developed interpretive skills through extensive case reviews at workstations equipped with syngo.MR Brevis and under the guidance of an expert tutor. By actively practicing on real cases using different imaging techniques, participants also learnt how to avoid the pitfalls in interpreting breast MRI.

During the hands-on workshop, participants also learnt how to evaluate 2D mammography and 3D Breast Tomosynthesis. All cases were acquired with Siemens Mammomat Inspiration and displayed on the company’s syngo.Breast Care workstations, enabling participants to become familiar with the quality of its HD Tomo images and the ease of use of its systems.

Additionally, under the guidance of a breast imaging expert, participants developed their skills in the interpretation of 3D breast ultrasound acquired with the ACUSON S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS), HELX Evolution with Touch Control and displayed on workstations equipped with syngo.Ultrasound Breast Analysis (sUSBA) Software. The active participation and real clinical cases enabled them to become familiar with the unique coronal plane while providing practical approaches to interpretation of 3D automated breast ultrasound.

Siemens also held self-guided sessions allowing participants to work at their own pace at a suitable time using specially configured syngo.Breast Care workstations. A series of breast tomosynthesis cases presented as problem cases with a solution enabled the participants to develop and test their tomosynthesis reading skills. Further, using syngo.Ultrasound Breast Analysis (sUSBA) Software, self guided reading sessions with real clinical cases enabled participants to become familiar with the unique coronal plane while providing practical approaches to interpretation of 3D automated breast ultrasound.
