SBI Webinar: Hindsight - What We Can Learn from Missed Breast Cancers
Breast imaging radiologists play a central and critical role in the early detection of breast cancer. Complex perceptual and cognitive tasks are required to accurately evaluate screening and diagnostic imaging as well as effectively perform image guided procedures. Additionally, a combination of patient-related, tumor-related, and technical factors can introduce challenges impacting cancer detection.
Review of missed breast cancers and understanding various contributing factors can be beneficial in improving radiologist performance and patient outcomes. In fact, to satisfy practice quality and safety requirements, the American College of Radiology is encouraging practices to adopt a collaborative peer learning process where radiologists share and learn from their errors both individually and in group conference formats.
In this webinar, Dr. Michael Taylor-Cho shares cases of missed breast cancers. He discusses the various factors that contributed to the missed breast cancer with particular emphasis on the various perceptual and cognitive errors that breast imaging radiologists commonly fall victim to. This webinar will enable attendees to identify and recognize the factors that contribute to missed breast cancers and come up with strategies to prevent similar errors in the future. Additionally, the webinar provides tools that can be employed in the attendees’ own institutional peer review learning process.
