Annual Congress of the Swiss Society of Senology

HÔTEL DE LA PAIX Lugano, Switzerland

27.09.2018 08:00 - 28.09.2018 18:00




Dear Colleagues,

This year's upcoming MIBB (minimal intensive breast biopsies) working group event in Switzerland will be carried out in conjunction with the Congress of the Swiss Society of Senology in Lugano.

The seminar will be split into a "Newcomer" and "General" course to avoid repetitive training. Hence, the MIBB certification course for breast vacuum biopsies (introductory course for newcomers) will take place on Wednesday 26th September in a private practice. On Thursday 27th September, the general course is addressed to newcomers as well as to advanced senologists, with a workshop session in the morning providing a greater interactivity compared to the symposium in the afternoon.

As in the last few years, one aim of the MIBB group is, not only to allocate training courses in vacuum biopsies, but also to emphasize on a series of related topics. One major focus of this year's training is set on preoperative planning of the breast and the axilla. This also involves preoperative examinations based on tomosynthesis, how to manage challenging biopsy results as well as questions and answers about repeated vacuum assisted biopsies after neoadjuvant therapy.

I am looking forward to welcoming you to our MIBB events in Lugano.

Dr. Claudia Kurtz, MIBB President


The presidents of the entire event in Lugano kindly invite you to an interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and wish you in this regard a successful attendance.
