Mammography

The Mammography curriculum provides registered radiologic technologists the didactic and clinical experience necessary to become registered mammographers.

Course work includes clinical rotations to mammography facilities, breast anatomy/physiology, patient preparation/education, mammographic procedures, interventional procedures, image analysis, mammographic instrumentation, physics, quality control, and quality assurance.

Graduates will meet the Mammography Quality Standards Act initial training requirements for mammography and may be eligible to apply to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) post primary certification in Mammography.

Online Program

The Mammography program is a two-semester (summer and fall) certificate program. The program is offered totally online with the exception of the positioning labs and clinical practice rotations. The positioning labs are facilitated on campus once every two weeks during the summer semester. Clinical rotations are completed during the fall semester and made available in the student’s geographic location through a joint effort facilitated by the student and the mammography faculty.
