Faculty presented current methods and future trends in breast cancer detection and diagnosis. Digital breast tomosynthesis, ultrasound, and MRI were discussed, as well as secondary screening techniques (abbreviated MRI, whole breast ultrasound, and molecular breast imaging) and screening controversies. Minimally invasive biopsies and new therapies were reviewed. Current research and methods including under-represented populations were considered. This meeting addressed breast cancer topics from a multidisciplinary point-of-view, presented by speakers from Europe, the United States, and Israel.
