On-line Registration for Achieving higher quality in breast X-ray imaging

This course provides the participant with an detailed overview of the image formation process in digital mammography, 3D mammography (stereoscopic imaging, breast tomosynthesis and breast CT) and contrast mammography. Methods to quantify image quality, breast dosimetry and (the philosophy of) technical quality evaluations for mammography equipment in screening will be discussed, including the challenges of quality evaluations of emerging technologies like breast tomosynthesis. Not only are the relevant physics and technical aspects discussed, but also other aspects of breast imaging (and screening) in radiology, radiography and epidemiology are covered. This multidisciplinary aspect is important for a Medical Physics Expert in high level trouble shooting optimization and setting up projects.

Aims: This module aims to help the future MPE acquire the knowledge, skills and competences necessary to exercise a leadership role within diagnostic and screening mammography in his own country and in Europe. The content of the module will provide the knowledge to assess (screening) quality and to perform high level trouble shooting. In the face-to-face phase participants will have the opportunity to discuss the major issues directly with the present European leaders of the profession.

Costs 950 Euro, for a limited number of participants a reduced fee is possible, check the EUTEMPE website for more information.

The registration is only completed after conformation that the registration fee has been paid.
