More than 60 Participants from across India attended the CME which included Radiologists & Radiography Technicians. Dilip Jose – MD & CEO, Manipal Hospitals inaugurated the CME and Clinical Sessions like ‘Step by Step Mammogram Interpretation’, ‘Latest in Mammography’ and ‘Nuances of Breast Ultrasound’ covered during the first half of the day. Hands-on Workshops on Diagnostic Mammography & Ultrasound guided biopsy were conducted in the second half.
Both the Lectures and Workshops were interactive and were well appreciated by the Faculty & Participants. The Clinical Technologies like 3D Breast Tomosynthesis, which was discussed in the CME, is proven to detect 40% more invasive breast cancers in comparison to 2D Mammography.
