Breast Imaging Conferences

Every Wednesday, there is an interdisciplinary (involves the disciplines of medical and radiation oncology, radiology, pathology, surgery, genetics and behavioral health) breast conference held at the ACC complex, where the imaging findings, pathology and clinical plan for all newly diagnosed breast cancer cases are discussed.

On the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings of every month, another interdisciplinary conference (rad-path correlation) is held, where any discordance in imaging finding and biopsy are discussed, in  addition, cases with interesting and challenging imaging findings are also discussed. This helps evolve possible algorithms for follow-up. Each session is preceded by a brief lecture on an interesting aspect of breast cancer management by a senior faculty from different disciplines.

In addition, didactic monthly noon-conferences and case presentations for the residents are routine.

Radiology Grand Rounds are held throughout the year with visiting and local professors offering the opportunity to meet and learn from leading national authorities on a wide variety of topics.

The Division strives to maintain a high quality of resident and fellowship education with stress on the six focus area outlined in the Clinical Learning Environment Review (CLER) program.
