Group Rate Cutoff 
The cutoff date for reservations is Saturday, March 10, 2018. Do note that reservations may sell out prior to the cutoff date; therefore, it is recommended that you book your room now. Reservations made after the cutoff date and time will be based on the room availability, and the group rate cannot be confirmed.

*Note: Booking outside of the room block will cause the society to incur additional costs that ultimately may jeopardize the quality of the experience in which you have become accustomed. SBI strongly encourages symposium attendees to book reservations using the hotel's dedicated SBI meeting website or toll-free telephone number. When you "book within the block," you help the SBI to keep meeting costs as low as possible, and enables us to provide some of the important features meeting attendees have come to enjoy, such as the Presidential Reception, the Exhibit Area coffee hours, and the MIT activities.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the attendee should be able to:

  1. Explain the current science and recommendations regarding use of screening mammography.
  2. Analyze other imaging methods increasingly used for breast cancer screening, including digital breast tomosynthesis as an alternative to conventional full field digital mammography, plus breast ultrasound, breast MRI and molecular breast imaging as supplements to mammography.
  3. Discuss the current pathology perspective on the biology of high risk lesions and of breast cancers.
  4. Describe the current and evolving surgical and systemic treatment strategies for breast cancers.
  5. Apply knowledge on a wide variety of breast imaging topics. Molecular breast imaging, radioactive seed localization, challenging cases, performance benchmarks, accreditation and economics will be included.
