This course will introduce students with radiography backgrounds to the basic principles behind breast imaging (patient care, instrumentation, anatomy and physiology, technique and evaluation). This course will teach students to operate and utilize digital and conventional mammography equipment to produce images of patients’ breast tissue. This course will prepare graduates to possess the knowledge, skill, and affect to meet the demands of an entry level-position as a mammographer. Theory presented will prepare and qualify students to participate in the AART Mammography certification examination.

MAM*202, Mammography Clinical Experience (4 credits)
Gen Ed Competency: Scientific Reasoning
This course will introduce students with radiography backgrounds to the basic principles behind breast imaging (patient care, instrumentation, anatomy and physiology, radiation protection, technique and evaluation). Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be competent in completing the entire mammographic procedure from request through quality control. A minimum of 240 contact hours of supervised instruction is required. Students must perform 75 mammographic examinations (screening and/or diagnostic) in addition to the 25 examinations that are required by the initial Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) mammography requirements. All examinations must be performed on patients (not phantom or simulations). Clinical experience and completion of required examinations will prepare and qualify students to sit for the ARRT Mammography certification examination.
