Breast Tomosynthesis Workshops
Hologic is offering three 3 hour workshops, combining a lecture and hands-on experience reading 3D breast tomosynthesis cases. Each three-hour session is led by an experienced radiologist. The workshops are intended for radiologists interested in learning more about this technology which has the potential to be both a breast cancer screening and diagnostic tool.
Workshop learning objectives:
Participants will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in using a dedicated mammography workstation and review clinical tomosynthesis data sets with accompanying standard mammography. The workshops will provide a unique opportunity to assess the potential impact tomosynthesis could have for a physician’s practice while receiving individual instruction.
Three workshops will be offered over the course of the conference. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your link to register for the tomosynthesis workshops or to for any other tomosynthesis enquiries

Advanced Solutions for Faster and Safer Imaging from Siemens
Advances in computed tomography – A clinical perspective
Prof. Dr. Christoph Becker, Munich, Germany
eSie FusionTM* Imaging. A Practical Solution for the Interventional Radiologist?
Anders Nilsson, M.D. Ph.D., Uppsala, Sweden
The latest advancements in CT and ultrasound provide better imaging in less time, with reduced radiation dose to patients. Recent trends in CT focus on providing reduced patient exposure through iterative reconstruction and other techniques, while simultaneously capturing useful, enhanced morphological and even functional images. With one-click eSie Fusion™* imaging, previous barriers to the seamless combination of CT and ultrasound images are removed, enabling a fast, realistic clinical workflow solution. The use of CT and eSie Guide* needle tracking add even more confidence to interventional imaging and techniques, especially in more difficult cases, to provide potential dose reduction for faster, safer procedures for patients and physicians.
Advances in computed tomography will be discussed from a clinical perspective at this symposium, including the latest trends in cardiac CT, dose management, and time resolved CT. The advantages of eSie Fusion technology on the ACUSON S3000™* ultrasound system will also be explored through early clinical cases and experiences.

Bayer Breakfast Symposium
Update on renal safety on contrast media
Prof.Michael Forsting, University of Essen, Germany
CT Angio and Perfusion : What you really need to know and what really matters
Prof.Andreas Mahnken, University of Aachen, Germany
Contrast-enhanced CT is the powerhouse of any radiology department - improvement in equipment allows for better, faster and more precise imaging of more patient per day with ever lower radiation exposure per procedure. Iodinated contrast agents, such as low-osmolar iopromide (Ultravist), are reliably serving radiologists to perform contrast-enhanced imaging. Still concerns remain: What about the renal risk patients? How much knowledge is needed to optimize protocols to get the most out of the images in modern dynamic applications? Both questions will be addressed in this symposium.
Prof. Michael Forsting, Head of the Department of Radiology of the University of Essen, Germany will address the question of renal safety of iodinated contrast agents. Which patients are truly at risk in CE-CT? What is the best prophylaxis for risk patients? What needs to be known about the differences of contrast agents classes regarding renal safety?
The lecture of Prof. Andreas Mahnken from the University of Aachen, Germany will address modern efficacy challenges in dynamic CT. It will introduce the iodine delivery rate as the key enhancement parameter for dynamic CT. Additionally, the key ingredients for perfect imaging (e.g. contrast timing, saline chaser) will be discussed and practical recommendations will be given.
