Jefferson Radiology, the largest radiology private practice group in Connecticut, and U-Systems, the leader in automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) technology, today announced the launch of the "Innovators in Breast Ultrasound Screening" webcast, focusing on new approaches to breast cancer screening.
The first module in a series of educational tools for breast imagers, radiologists, and referring physicians, the webcast highlights how leading innovators in breast imaging are applying new 3D technology aimed at improving patient outcomes, expanding their clinical practice, and meeting new legislative requirements.
Available at www.BreastUltrasoundScreening.com, the webcast was recorded during a recent live course in Hartford, Connecticut. Educational content features guidance on identifying the type of women who would benefit from adjunctive breast screening and why; and detailed analysis of the clinical data supporting the use of automated 3D ultrasound for women with dense breast tissue.
"The 'Innovators in Breast Ultrasound Screening' webcast is designed to help provide a foundation for implementation of an adjunctive screening service into routine clinical practice," said Ron Ho, president and CEO, U-Systems. "We are proud to work with Jefferson Radiology, which has already demonstrated pioneering leadership in breast ultrasound screening, to develop critical educational content featuring world renowned breast imaging experts."
