January 28, 2016

Last week, the member of the Image Analysis Laboratory Oliver Diaz attended the training course “Achieving Quality in Diagnostic and Screening Mammography” as part of his Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellow. This course, the 8th within the EUTEMPE·RX series for medical physics experts, was held at the Dutch reference centre for mammography screening (LRCB), Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

During 5 days, all attendees got an overview of a number of breast imaging technologies from a range of specialists: medical physicists, epidemiologists, CAD engineers, radiologists and radiographers. Several topics were covered, such European protocols to measure image quality for mammography and breast tomosynthesis, estimation of breast dose during the X-ray mammography procedures, avoid image artefacts, etc. It was a very successful course as Oliver commented:  “I found this training course very useful. Now I can understand much better the entire breast cancer screening workflow and identify what needs to be improved. I will definitely use all this new knowledge for my research within the SCARtool project”.
