The BreastScreen Reader Assessment Strategy (BREAST) provides mammography screen readers the opportunity to assess their proficiency on a set of 60 clinically relevant test cases, and delivers immediate, educational feedback on their performance. The strategy uses a novel, web-based software offered by industry partner, Ziltron, at workstations equipped by Sectra and Hologic.
In 2011, The BREAST team offered free workshops at the 62nd ASM of RANZCR in Melbourne using the "Hobart" test set. At AOCR/RANZCR 2012, the BREAST team launches the "Sydney" test set at workshops on Friday 31st August, Saturday 1st September and Sunday 2nd September.
Participants will receive a personal performance report, a completion certificate, and are eligible to gain 30CPD from RANZCR for partaking in this professional development activity. BREAST is an initiative of the University of Sydney and BreastScreen NSW, with the support of RANZCR and the Department of Health and Aging.
We are currently accepting Expressions of Interest from delegates wishing to attend the BREAST Workshops. The sessions are currently at capacity, however there may be an opportunity onsite to attend if a registered attendee drops out last minute. Please forward your contact details (particularly your mobile number) to the AOCR 2012 Congress Managers; firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be included on the waiting list.
Presenter:: Dr Bruno Giuffre
Room: Bayside 103
Trainee Rep: Dr Mark Fiorentino
This interactive workshop will provide trainees with the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of performing musculoskeletal ultrasound. A specific focus will be put on shoulder ultrasound and ultrasound of the ankle tendons, as these are common examinations performed in general radiology departments. Both normal and common pathologies in musculoskeletal imaging will be presented provided the trainees with an understanding of the level of knowledge expected in the Part 2 RANZCR exams.
Topic: O&G Imaging
Presenter: Dr Virginia Saxton
Room: Bayside 102
Trainee Rep: Dr Sebastian Buzynski
In this interactive workshop a variety of Obstetric and Gynaecological cases tailored to the Part 2 vivas will be shown. How to approach and present the cases and avoid pitfalls will be discussed.
Topic: Exotic Diseases
Presenter: Prof Turgut Tali
Room: Bayside 102
Trainee Rep: Dr Nick Brown
In this workshop: Exotic infections are caused generally by parasites or viruses. These infections are increasing due to tourism, travel, increasing attitude of consuming different food, temptation, and curiosity. Clinical and laboratory findings, also imaging findings vary according to the cause and the different subtypes and rarely pathognomonic. Imaging findings mostly mimic many other pathologies as stroke, tumors, hypersensitivity reactions, metabolic diseases, infections with poor clinical-imaging correlation. Diagnosis can be very difficult if anybody is not aware.
Presenter: Dr David Brazier
Room: Bayside 103
Trainee Rep: Dr Andrew McLaughlin
The workshop will be a series of cases with interaction from the audience, based on common Neuroradiological diagnosis, some of which I have observed are poorly handled by candidates in the DRACR Part Viva's or by radiological registrars in general.
