Our Course on High Risk Breast Lesions on Core Biopsy

I have uploaded a pdf version of our course on high risk lesions on breast core biopsy that we gave last year in San Diego.  We used an audience response system so if you follow through the slides you’ll see the questions we asked of the audience and the responses that we received in real time.  It was nearly 100% radiologists and you can see how differently they recommended further surgery given the exact same mammogram image and exact same pathology report.

The pdf version of the course can be viewed here:  high_risk

My breast imaging colleague from Harvard and I feel it’s important to let women know that depending on who your doctor is, you can be recommended for surgery or not based on what we feel is conflicting and not very solid evidence based on the existing literature.

We are giving the same course this year in Chicago  at the ARRS meeting, and I will update this post after we receive the audience responses for this year.

Make sure you get the most information you can before you decide to pursue surgery if you are diagnosed with one of these high risk lesions.
