- Perform a case-based review of high-risk, indeterminate, or “controversial” lesions.
- Discuss the controversies surrounding the diagnosis and management of each of these lesions.
- Understand the importance of careful radiologic-pathologic review in determining the appropriate management approaches for these lesions when encountered on image-guided core biopsy.
- Correlate anatomy with pathophysiology across multiple modalities of breast imaging.
- Describe comparative anatomy of human and non-human breast and its implications for breast cancer development.
- Describe the incidence trends in recent years of breast cancer in minorities.
- Elaborate upon the disparities in mortality rates, screening attendance, and incidence rates of minorities vs Caucasians.
- Provide possible explanations for the disparities within minority groups.
- Review the concept of breast density and the importance of breast density classification.
- Review the current methods available to evaluate breast density.
- Describe the impact of density on screening and cancer detection, including the impact on breast cancer risk, and the masking effect on mammography in the clinical setting.
- Properly and consistently characterize breast cysts as simple, complicated, or complex.
- Understand the positive predictive value of each type of breast cyst, considering variable underlying risk profiles.
- Properly select management profiles for each type of cyst, including biopsies, short interval follow-up, and return to yearly screening examinations.
- Describe what BPE is and the factors that affect BPE level.
- Review the relationship between breast density and BPE.
- Discuss the relationship between BPE and breast cancer risk with review of current literature.

- Review important aspects of implementing a successful breast cancer risk program into a breast imaging center.
- Describe methods to collect patient risk factors and calculate patient risk.
- Outline the screening recommendations for different types of gene mutations that may be detected through a risk assessment program, and the implications on breast imaging and patient care.
- Implement clinically relevant decision-making in difficult cases.
