During the hands-on sessions, the participants will have the opportunity to learn and perform ultrasound identification maneuvers for breast lesions, biopsy puncture with automatic or semi-automatic devices, mounting clips and metal wires to locate non-palpable lesions.

The interactive section of case presentations offers students the opportunity to apply the acquired knowledge in the diagnosis and establishing of the therapeutic indication for the present breast lesions.
