We are excited to announce the Advanced Breast SIG Day in Adelaide on 11 November, 2023.
The Advanced Breast SIG Day is designed to provide sonographers with the latest knowledge and hands-on learning in advanced breast ultrasound. The event will feature four expert speakers who will cover a range of advanced topics from technical aspects to clinical applications.
In addition to the presentations, there will be a unique opportunity to view live scanning demonstrations and to participate in a Q&A session with all of the speakers. The event provides an excellent platform for attendees to network with colleagues, discuss best practices, and exchange ideas. To close the day, there will be networking drinks where attendees can continue their discussions and make new connections. This is an excellent opportunity for sonographers to enhance their knowledge, skills, and network with peers.
