Breast Ultrasound Training Course
Course Overview
This course will provide increased knowledge of the technical and clinical aspects of breast ultrasound as well as practical hands-on training of ultrasound imaging of the breast. An overview of the basic principles and techniques utilized in breast ultrasound will be presented. This course will be helpful for mammographers and sonographers who are directly involved in breast imaging and physicians whose practice includes women’s health. Participants should have an understanding of the basic concepts of mammography. If you are a mammographer looking for training in breast ultrasound or a sonographer wanting to review basic breast imaging skills, this course is for you. Sonologists and physicians wanting to learn breast ultrasound techniques would also benefit from this course.
Educational Objectives
At the completion of this seminar,
participants will be able to:
  • Optimize preparation for ARRT and ARDMS Breast Ultrasound Registry exams.
  • Understand how the basic principles and instrumentation of ultrasound affect the technique of breast ultrasound.
  • Recognize normal breast anatomy on the ultrasound image and evaluate lesions for their benign or malignant features.
  • Recall the mammographic and ultrasonic features of specific benign and malignant lesions.
  • Explain the role and importance of mammography, ultrasound, MRI, nuclear medicine, and ductography in the work up and management of the breast.
  • Recognize breast ultrasound artifacts, understand why they occur, and describe techniques to minimize the occurrence of those that degrade the image.
  • Develop an awareness of the invasive procedures that are available, as well as, the benefits and limitations of each.
  • Define the different surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for patients who develop breast cancer.
  • Have received 16 hours of structured education related to the content specifications as outlined by the ARRT.
