"Managing Breast Cancer Risk" brings together a multidisciplinary group of experts to address Breast Cancer risk in a clinically meaningful way. Chapters providing detailed information on individual risk factors are accompanied by a discussion of models, which integrate multiple factors for a more complete assessment of risk. Traditional strategies for risk management, including surveillance and prophylactic surgery, are reviewed, and the data on techniques such as ductal lavage, digital mammagrophy, and screening with magnetic resonance is presented. The rational for chemoprevention with selective oestrogen receptor modulators (SERMS) is discussed, and the evidence for tamoxifen as a chemopreventative is updated. Finally, the critical (and often ignored) areas of quality of life and symptom management are addressed.
This course meets the FDA's definition of education acceptable for the mammography continuing education requirement for Mammographers.
For further study in mammography, we also offer Breast Cancer, and The Requisites: Breast Imaging, both ASRT Category A credits. For those requiring less hours, we also offer Mammographer's Guide to Breast Health, which covers topics such as treatment options, what to expect from these options, and how to prepare for reconstructive surgery. These courses also meet FDA requirements for continuing education.
