Breast MRI Course

Breast MRI Course provides an overview of breast MRI imaging strategies, as well as the optimization of imaging strategies will be discussed.

The goal is to have a profound discussion of the advantages and disadvantages and challenges MRI methods Conventional and advanced with focus on clinical practice.

In this course, Information that the radiologist needs in breast MRI will be discussed and then the projects have the potential of MRI imaging techniques in imaging breast tumors will be studied.

This course is an opportunity for you to share your knowledge and reinforce discussion group information.
