Digital Mammography Training Courses
About the Course
The Achieving Quality Imaging Full Field Digital Training in Mammography seminar is a comprehensive 1 day continuing education course that covers all aspects pertaining to initial digital mammography training for radiologic technologists interested in crossing over into digital mammography.
The full field digital mammography seminar is designed to provide attendees with the initial digital mammography training necessary to fulfill the requirements set forth by the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA).
Who Should Attend
Any radiologic technologist who is looking to meet the requirements set forth by the MQSA for initial training in digital mammography. Our comprehensive full field digital mammography training program is approved by American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and will satisfy 8 of the required Category A credit hours.
Prospective attendees also include those radiologists who are fulfilling their need for Continuing Medical Education credits.
Our Digital Mammography course satisfies the mandated 8 hours of initial training in full field digital mammography required under MQSA regulations. It is approved by the ASRT for 8 Category A continuing education credits for x-ray technologists. However, this course satisfies the minimum 8 hour requirement under the MQSA for both radiologists and technologists.
Radiologists and technologists will leave the course with an 8 hour certificate which satisfies, and is proof of, the MQSA requirement for initial training in full field digital mammography. The course will cover a review of binary numbers, digital image definition, image acquisition, detectors, image processing, display and storage, image quality and quality control and radiation dose.
