The curriculum for “Mammography Initial Training Option 1” will provide the technologist with all of the required components of training as outlined by MQSA. The course includes: 24 hours of training on core competencies as outlined by MQSA, 8 hours of Digital Mammography Modality Specific Training, and 8 hours of Tomosynthesis Modality Specific Training.
You will be awarded 40 hours of Category A credit for the five day course. The course satisfies the 16 hours of structured education requirement to apply for the ARRT Post-Primary Mammography Certification Examination. This course also meets the guidelines for states requiring special education for mammography.
Training Option 1
In April, 1999, the final rules of the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) became effective that required entry level training for mammography including the performance of 25 patient procedures under the supervision of a qualified mammographer.
Training Option 1 is for technologists who can perform their 25 patient procedures at their facility.
