Want to get up to speed on Coronary CT Imaging, or the role of 3D mammography in General Practice?
Our Dr Jones & Partners specialist Radiologists continue to offer regular education sessions tailored to referrers, and we have two GP Education events scheduled for 2020.
Coronary CT Imaging – Online Live Zoom session
November 9, 2020
Diagnosing patients with chest pain or at risk of coronary artery disease can be challenging in general practice. The majority of patients unfortunately do not present with a clear-cut diagnosis. This Education session will discuss how coronary CT can safely and rapidly exclude atherosclerotic disease in patient with chest pain and assess atherosclerotic plaque burden. The coronary CT scan can be performed within days.

Digital 3D mammography offers the potential advantage of detecting breast cancer where standard digital mammography may be limited by dense breast tissue or overlapping tissues which may hide a lesion.
Also known as Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), this technology takes a series of low dose X-rays through the breast at different angles. It produces a stack of images displayed as fine slices through the breast, utilising volumetric imaging with reconstructed images. VolparaDensityTM software is used in conjunction with DBT to provide an objective assessment of breast density.
