Sign up for this full day workshop packed with intermediate and advanced topics on the breast intervention.  This course is tailor made for radiologists (including residents and fellows), surgeons, radiographers and clinicians with an interest in breast intervention. 

Apart from the fundamentals of breast intervention, experience first-hand the newest advancements on Tomosynthesis-guided Biopsy and Cryoablation, which is up and coming in Singapore and Southeast Asia for the management of benign and malignant tumours, along with introductions in Radioguided Occult Lesion Localisation (ROLL) and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU). The workshop will also cover the fundamentals as well as tips and tricks for various imaging guided biopsies including Tomosynthesis, MRI and Ultrasound guided Vacuum Assisted Biopsy.
