Course description

Expiry date: July 1, 2023


Thanks to routine breast cancer screening that allows early detection of breast cancer, diagnosed women can have a good prognosis. The radiologist’s ability to interpret screening exams is directly influenced by the technologist’s ability to perform correct conventional screening mammography views. Poor-quality mammograms are primarily due to inadequate patient positioning. The quality of mammography images can be influenced by a variety of factors, many of which are under the control of the technologist performing the exam. This course aims to help mammography technologists overcome the challenges that arise during the screening process. It focuses on required mammography positioning criteria and provides tips and tricks and practical suggestions for resolving many of the issues that you frequently encounter.
