This discounted course bundle will satisfy the MQSA requirements for FFDM and 3D mammography imaging.
This bundle contains 2 courses for a total of 16 credits and is discounted from the individual course price. Access to course material is for one year from the date of purchase.
The Participant will receive a certificate for each course.
The courses included and their descriptions are listed below.
DIGITAL BREAST TOMOSYNTHESIS (DBT)
This unit of study provides the mammographer with the general features of 3D (Three-dimensional) digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT). The mammographer will learn why DBT was introduced as a new breast imaging modality. A comparison of 2D digital mammography to 3D tomosynthesis is included, from acquisition to display. Information on implementation, dose, and patient selection is also provided. This course satisfies the 8 hours of DBT training required by MQSA.
DIGITAL MAMMOGRAPHY WITH QUALITY ASSURANCE (QA) & QUALITY CONTROL (QC)
This unit of study is intended to provide the mammographer with a comprehensive understanding of digital mammography. Image quality depends on several factors. There is a key relationship between the physical qualities of mammography and the radiologist’s ability to detect and interpret the various features on the image. With a better understanding of mammography physics, instrumentation, and QA/QC practices, the mammographer will be equipped with the tools she needs to deliver the highest quality of care to the patient. This course satisfies the 8 hours of digital mammography training required by MQSA.
Repeating Courses – Technologists may repeat any course for CE, if they complete it in a different biennium. ARRT regulations state that an individual may not repeat a self-learning CE activity for credit if it was reported in the same CE biennium.
