Digital Breast Tomosynthesis is an online mammography training course that is approved by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) for 6 continuing education credits and is accepted for American Registry of Radiologic Technologists ® (ARRT ®) license renewal. It also meets the CE requirements for the states of California, Texas, Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, and New Mexico.

Digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) is a new technology that helps improve the radiologist’s ability to diagnose breast cancer. It is a three-dimensional imaging technique that images the breast in layers and decreases the superposition of normal tissues. The first DBT unit was approved by the FDA in 2011, and today almost all facilities use a DBT system in combination with 2D mammography for breast imaging.

Our Digital Breast Tomosynthesis mammography training course is an interactive, online continuing education course developed to help you understand how digital breast tomosynthesis mammography works and know its clinical applications, advantages, limitations, and the main features of the various DBT units. It describes the accreditation and certification process of MQSA and the training and CE requirements for the radiologist, technologist, and physicist.
