Breast Surgery Workshop 2017

12dec 2017

Terug naar het overzicht

The number of patients with non-palpable breast disease is steadily increasing due to improved imaging techniques for mammographic screening but also because of the more frequent use of primary systemic treatment prior to breast cancer surgery.

Radioactive seed localization is an attractive method for localization of breast lesions and lymph nodes in order to facilitate precise primary surgery of non-palpable breast lesions and patient tailored loco regional breast surgery after primary systemic treatment for breast cancer. This workshop will consist of didactic lectures as well as an optional hands-on skills session.

Topics include

  • Radiation safety issues and protocols
  • How to start radioactive seed localization in your institute
  • Indications for radioactive seed localization (breast and lymph nodes; the MARI procedure = Marking the Axillary Node with a radioactive Iodine seed)
  • Recent research in this area

Intended audience

This workshop is designed to provide knowledge and techniques to breast cancer teams (including radiologists, surgeons, nuclear medicine consultants and radiation safety officers) in order to enable initiation of radioactive seed localization in their daily clinical practice.
