MIBB Course /Symposium/ Annual Meeting Swiss Society of Senology

Dear Colleagues,
This year`s upcoming MIBB workgroup event (minimal invasive breast biopsies in Switzerland) will be carried out in conjunction with the Congress of the Swiss Society of Senology in Lugano.
The seminar will be split up into a “Newcomer” and “General” course to avoid repetitive training. Hence, the MIBB certification course for breast vacuumbiopsies (introductory course for newcomers) will take place on Wednesday 26th September in a private practice. On Thursday 27th September, the general course is addressed to newcomers as well as to advanced senologists, with a workshop session in the morning providing a greater interactivity compared to the symposium in the afternoon.
As in the last few years, one aim of the MIBB group is not only to allocate training courses in vacuumbiopsies, but also to emphasize on a series of related topics. One major focus of this year`s training is set on preoperative planning of the breast and the axilla. This also involves preoperative examinations based on tomosynthesis, how to manage challenging biopsy results as well as questions and answers about repeated vacuum assisted biopsies after neoadjuvant therapy.
I am looking forward to welcoming you to our MIBB events in Lugano.
With cordial regards

Dr. Claudia Kurtz
Presidency of MIBB

The presidents of the entire event in Lugano kindly invite you to an interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and wish you in this regard a successful attendance.

Tomosynthesis Teaching Atlas by M. Sonnenschein

will be published within the next months

This superbly illustrated atlas of breast tomosynthesis covers all aspects and applications of the technology, which reduces tissue overlap and facilitates the recognition of small cancers. After clear explanation of basic principles of the technique, individual chapters address diagnostic criteria, indications, and use of breast tomosynthesis as a screening tool. The findings obtained in the full range of benign and malignant conditions, including postoperative changes, are then presented with the aid of a wealth of high-quality illustrations from case examples. Detailed attention is paid to the BI-RADS classification, bearing in mind the ability of tomosynthesis to reduce categorizations as BI-RADS 3 and 0, thereby decreasing the recall rate. The book concludes by examining tomosynthesis-guided interventions such as vacuum-assisted breast biopsy and wire localisation.
