Upcoming Conference on Breast DCIS

Posted Aug 14 2009 12:00am

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has organized a free state-of-the-art conference on the Diagnosis and Management of Ductal Carcinoma in Situ from September 22-24, 2009 in Bethesda, Maryland.


 NIH State-of-the-Science Conference. Diagnosis and Management of Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS). September 22-24, 2009.

The cool things are that 1) it's free (hey, you can't stay home for that!) and 2) if you can't make it, you can register for the live Webcast (like I have).

It looks like this conference will address some practical issues, such as, the role of MRI, as well as frame some of the research questions that remain pertinent for DCIS.  Based on some of my hospital's recent Tumor Board conferences, I hope that follow-up of columnar cell lesions will receive some discussion.  I also hope that there will be some mention of how integrated pathology-radiology diagnostics might impact diagnosis and management of DCIS in the future.
