Digital Mammography CE Bundle
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.

“I have been in radiology for 29 years and during that time I obtained my mammography license. I enjoyed working in this field, but when we moved, I was employed in a clinic that didn’t have a mammography unit in their facility. Years later, as I explored getting back into the mammo field, I needed to meet the guidelines and recommendations of MQSA. I searched many online sites to find CE coursework to fulfill the requirements. There are many offerings out there, however, Radcomm is the best in price and quality and I highly recommend it to anyone who needs CE credits.”
“Love everything about your program – prices, downloadable content, content is interesting and testing is appropriate to the field. So glad I found you!”
“I like everything about your program. It is convenient, relevant to my job, and cost efficient. I especially like the topics and I will recommend RadComm to my coworkers.”

All other states recognize and accept continuing education Category A credits approved by an ARRT RCEEM (Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism).
The ARRT does not have any specific CE requirements for mammography technologists. They do require that all ARRT technologists earn 24 Category A credits per biennium (every two years) to satisfy CE requirements.
As part of the 24 credits required per biennium by the ARRT, MQSA (FDA) requires 15 credits of mammography-specific continuing education every 36 months (3 years) for mammographers. To simplify the confusion, RadComm recommends that you obtain a minimum of 5 Category A credits in mammography each year to fulfill the MQSA requirement.
