About this Seminar
Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) holds promise to improve a host of new imaging applications for your breast imaging practice. FFDM will improve image quality, increase patient flow, decrease patient dose and reduce retakes. The advantages of this new technology account for the proliferation of commercial FFDM units in the clinical setting.
This seminar provides an opportunity to learn from an experienced faculty about this new technology and its appropriate utilization in a breast imaging practice. Practical considerations for making the transition to digital imaging will be emphasized, and new applications that are facilitated by the digital image format will be reviewed.

The Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) requires 8 hours of training on FFDM before operating these units. Attending this seminar fulfills this requirement.
Educational Objectives
At the completion of this seminar,
participants will be able to:
  • Describe the differences between imaging systems used to perform Full Field Digital Mammography (FFDM) examinations.
  • Describe the parameters in digital imaging that control resolution and contrast.
  • Know the differences in image display/output devices used in digital mammography.
  • Describe newly emerging technologies used with digital mammographic imaging.
