The purpose of the session is to discuss how breast cancer screening remains an important subject for the radiologist, particularly as there continue to be conflicting studies and recommendations regarding the patient age groups and imaging intervals most appropriate for mammographic screening. In addition, new imaging methods or modalities including digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) are increasingly used for breast imaging. Further, the 2013 ACR BI-RADS Atlas introduced key changes in the descriptors lexicon, assessment and recommendation terminology and outcomes audit definitions. This session will provide an overview of the current status of mammographic screening digital breast tomosynthesis, and the 2013 BI-RADS lexicon. Learners will sharpen the tools they need to practice effectively while promoting the advancement of the breast imaging field and delivering the highest quality of patient care. Developed in conjunction with the Society of Breast Imaging.
