Mammography Continuing Education for Your ARRT ® Renewal
An interactive, online mammography continuing education course that fulfills your ARRT ® digital mammography continuing education credits requirements
Patient Preparation in Mammography Continuing Education
A mammogram is the gold standard in diagnosing breast cancer. Patients coming for a mammogram need to experience care, compassion, reassurance, professionalism, education, and often counseling. A mammography technologist often has to provide all of these in addition to performing the mammogram.
Patient preparation for mammography is a very important step and requires good communication with the technologist who will perform the mammogram. Communication will relax the patient and reduce the chance of suboptimal imaging of the pectoral muscles. It will also help in identifying sensitive breasts and the reason behind the sensitivity.
For all these reasons, this online mammography continuing education course was designed to help you understand how to communicate, prepare, and interact with patients before, during, and after the examination. It will as well tackle around 20 common myths about breast cancer.
This online digital mammography continuing education course is accredited by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) for 2 CE credits and is accepted for American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® (ARRT ®) certification renewal. It also meets the CE requirements for the states of California, Texas, Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts, and New Mexico.
The course consists of 1 module followed by a post-test, and provides you 2 Category A CE credits to fulfill your biennial 24 CE requirements and/or to complete your prescribed continuing education.
