AHEC’s new “Initial Training in Mammography” video course is the ideal way to jump start your way to becoming a MQSA qualified mammographer. “Film Screen Modality Initial Training” meets the MQSA requirements for the modality specific training in film screen. You will receive a comprehensive overview of the in's and out's of film screen mammography.

This 8 hour video course begins with “Film Screen Quality Control” which provides a thorough review of the eleven film screen quality control procedures mandated by MQSA. With mammography image quality dependent on optimization of the entire imaging chain, this portion of the course is important to discuss. “Analog Technical Factors” will make you knowledgeable of how the technical factors affect image quality and how to make adjustments to optimize the image. Finally, “Analog Artifacts” will give you the opportunity to guess what the artifacts are and see visual examples of equipment, processor and patient introduced artifacts in the film screen environment.
