Participants' Reviews

The workshop was amazing. It covered all the basic to advanced concepts I wanted to learn about MRI Breast reporting. I was impressed by the faculty, presentation, and overall organization. Now I feel more confident and prepared to start MRI Breast reporting according to international guidelines.
Dr. Lydia Kuntjoro
I thank Dr. Niketa for organizing the workshop. I got most of what I aimed for. The faculty was very sincere and helpful to us and gave personalized attention to us. They even helped me with some cases I brought from back home. I recommend other radiologists to join the course as it is good value.
