About this Program

This webinar provides attendees with the fundamentals of breast navigation in the imaging spectrum. The program provides an overview of breast navigation, a review of radiology concepts, and how they relate to navigation and managing high-risk patients.

Additionally, this program will review the basics of “how to” navigate patients in the imaging spectrum. Topics covered will include how to review a pathology report, how to deliver results with empathy, and how to support a patient beyond the imaging spectrum. Benign and malignant pathology and common cancer treatment options will be discussed. Lastly, there will be an imaging review of real cases to demonstrate how navigation impacted the outcome and time for Q&A.

Educational Objectives

After this webinar, attendees will be able to: 

  • Understand the definition and purpose of breast navigation.
  • Understand breast cancer statistics, risk factors, and risk reduction strategies.
  • Understand breast anatomy, BIRADS, and breast density.
  • Identify emerging technology, breast interventional procedures, and mammography tracking systems.
  • Identify high-risk assessment tools and understand the purpose of genetic testing. Understand what high-risk surveillance is and how it ties back to imaging.
  • Understand how to navigate a patient in the imaging spectrum.
  • Understand how to interpret a pathology report and explain it compassionately to a patient.
  • Identify resources to support a patient on the cancer journey.
