The Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) requires all new and experienced mammographers to receive a minimum of 8 hours of training/education in a new mammographic modality. Due to its various benefits to patients and healthcare providers alike, full field digital mammography (FFDM) is the new modality of choice. This course is specifically intended for those technologists with experience in the field, but no formal training in digital mammography.

2016 Update This course describes the process of mining and enriching natural uranium and it use in the production of Molybdenum-99, why/how Mo-99 decays to Tc-99m and the importance in the nuclear medicine industry, and the current and future industry investments in regards to global reactors and LEU conversion.
This short course will help the student develop an understanding of the complexity of culture and appreciate
the implications culture has on the provision of health care services.
This flexible online course will introduce the concept of “red dot systems”, provide the MRT with a systematic method for reviewing radiographs and will provide information on the clinical assessment, radiography and image interpretation of each anatomical area.
This series provides vital information about the conceptual basis and practical processes of improving safety in medical environments. The Safety Essentials series will prepare you to provide a secure environment for your patients. Patient transfer and transport, risk management and infection control are just a few of the topics in this series designed to keep you and your patients safe from any hazard.
Although this course is geared towards limited scope Radiography, it is a great refresher for all technologists with an introduction to radiography, the science of radiography, radiographic anatomy, positioning, pathology, professionalism, patient care and ancillary clinical skills.

A one-hour pre-recorded webinar on 3D mammography: indications and patient types; and technological and clinical differences between FFDM, 3D, and synthetic 2D images
This course is ASRT approved for 27.25 category A CE credits and serves as an introduction to the understanding of why benign disease or breast cancer looks the way they do on the mammogram, the ultrasound, and the MRI. The book has a chapter dedicated to the use of each breast imaging modality, including mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and nuclear medicine. Each modality is discussed with reference to a spectrum of applications that includes screening, diagnosis, surveillance, interventions, and assessment of therapeutic efficacy.
Diversity training, understanding and implementation in professional and personal lives leads to bringing about change to create highly functional places of work as well as bringing out the best in the people that we care for. Healthcare providers, and institutions and individuals can break down the barriers that lead to mistakes and miscommunications.
What is gastroesophageal reflux and why is it so common in our society? Does every one with heartburn need investigating? And in these days of readily available endoscopy, what is the role, if any, for barium radiology?
