Medical Technology Management Institute Strengthens Position as Leader in Mammography Education by Acquiring Achieving Quality Imaging
WAUKESHA, WI (September 10, 2013) – Medical Technology Management Institute (MTMI), the industry leader in live continuing education seminars, training courses and webinars for radiologic technologists and diagnostic medical physicists announced today that it has acquired Achieving Quality Imaging (AQI).
AQI specializes in mammography training providing high quality hands-on training to radiologic technologists throughout the United States. Founded in 1995 by Ms. Kathy DeGelder; AQI has taught thousands of radiologic technologists the skills necessary to provide mammography procedures, and satisfy the training requirements of the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA). This acquisition positions AQI to continue to provide this critical mammography training and an opportunity to expand its offerings into other areas of diagnostic imaging for women.
“I am very excited about this acquisition by MTMI and the opportunities it provides for growth and expansion of AQI programs to service the breast imaging community,” said Ms. Kathy DeGelder, founder of AQI. “MTMI has the capacity to handle the event planning and management aspect of our training meetings, as well as the experience to assist in the development of very high quality educational content.”
In addition to the initial mammography training AQI will develop continuing education programs in breast imaging for radiologists, sonographers and other health care professionals.
“We are proud to welcome AQI into Medical Technology Management Institute,” said J. Ed Barnes, Ph.D., president of MTMI. “Their high quality mammography training programs are a compliment to MTMI’s growing portfolio of CE and CME programs for medical imaging professionals. Together we will help radiologic technologists realize their goals to become mammographers and provide the finest patient care.”
