About this Program

Our popular (28th Annual) Breast Imaging Conference has moved to Las Vegas!

Revitalize your passion for breast imaging in this dynamic conference designed for technologists! Dive into topics like Breast Cancer in Minorities and strategies for enhancing Breast Ultrasound reproducibility from the physician's viewpoint. Explore the evolving landscape of Contrast-Enhanced Mammography and gain empathetic insights into a patient's journey post-diagnosis with a passionate (and funny!) oncoplastic breast surgeon. Join our technologist-led sessions covering essential areas such as Mammography and Breast Ultrasound Correlation, Breast Navigation, Positioning tips and tricks, and a sneak peek into the History of MQSA.

This new location brings some new speakers to our program as well as some well-loved speakers from past conferences. We are excited to debut breast imaging radiologist Dr. Tanya Moseley from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX, and breast imaging radiologist Calin Caluser from Rush Copley Hospital in Aurora, IL 

In addition, we will introduce Tricia Trammell CRA, FAHRA, BA R.T. (R) (M) (QM) (BS), BHCN a Breast Navigator from UT Southwestern in Fort Worth, TX. and Shelly Stellwagen RT (R) (M) from Monument, CO. Back by popular demand are Dr. Toula Destounis from Elizabeth Wende Breast Care in Rochester, NY, and breast surgeon Dr Barry Rosen from Advocate Aurora Health in Chicago, IL. We are grateful to add MTMI consultants Marsha Dunn RT (R) (M) from Atlanta, GA, Michele Sisell RT (R) (M) (BS) from Oronoco, MN, and Deborah Ann Thames RT (R) (M) (QM) from Humble, TX.  We have a wonderful line-up of speakers!
