Abstract

The education committees of the ACR Commission on Breast Imaging and the Society of Breast Imaging have revised the resident and fellowship training curriculum to reflect the current state of breast imaging in the United States. The original curriculum, created by the Society of Breast Imaging in 2000, had been updated only once before, in 2006. Since that time, a number of significant changes have occurred in the way mammography is acquired, how adjunctive breast imaging methods are used, and how pathology is assessed. This curricular update is meant to reflect these and other changes and to offer guidance to educators and trainees in preparing those interested in providing breast imaging services.
