Early diagnosis of breast cancer maximises the chances of survival so the availability of tools and training to support early cancer detection is vital. In response to this, the 12 Image Interpretation Breast Imaging e-learning sessions will be updated this year.

The content, first published in 2014, has been used by over 2500 professionals including radiographers, nurses, students, doctors and allied health professionals. The average content rating by users is 4.3 out of 5.

Dr Sally Athey, Consultant Radiologist, South Tyneside and Gateshead Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, will conduct the updates. Each session will be checked for policy, procedural and technological changes, and updated accordingly.
