  • Do I have to be an RT for one year before I can enter mammography?

    The ARRT rule originally stated you had to be an R.T. for at least one year before you could apply to take the ARRT mammography registry exam.  That rule no longer exists.  Currently, you may enter mammography directly from x-ray school.  The current requirements mandate that you have met the standards defined by the MQSA to perform mammography (see answer to the question "how to do I  get started in mammography") and that you perform the mammography clinical experience requirements listed in the ARRT mammography Certification Handbook.

  • If I am working in a digital mammography facility, do I need a certain number of continuing education credits in digital mammography on an ongoing basis?

    No, MQSA requires that you obtain 15 credits in mammography every three years. This mammography continuing education can be in analog or digital mammography. There is a one time only need for 8 hours of initial digital mammography training before performing mammography on a digital mammography machine. After the initial 8 hours is accomplished, the required 15 credits in mammography every 3 years can be in analog or digital.

  • Will I be able to take the mammography boards as soon as I complete your course?

    No, after completing our course you must perform the clinical experience requirements found in the most current ARRT Mammography Certification Handbook.  These requirements include: performing a minimum of 100 mammograms, performing quality control procedures a certain number of times, observing or assisting in 4 out of list of 9 imaging modalities, sitting with a radiologist for a minimum of 10 screening or diagnostic mammograms and reviewing the most recent Medical Physicist survey.

  • The ARRT handbook says that my mammography education needs to be within 24 months of applying to take the Mammography Registry Exam. The FDA states that my initial training in mammography course never expires. I'm confused. If I go longer than two years after my initial mammography training, do I ever need to repeat the course?

    Under the Mammography Quality Standards Act, MQSA, our 40 hour initial training in mammography course does NOT expire.  It is good for your entire career as part of your initial mammography training.  However, as of January 1, 2016 the ARRT requires 16 structured hours in mammography education within 2 years prior to applying to sit for the ARRT mammography registry exam.  Our 40 hour course has the 16 structured hours within it.  If you apply to take the mammography exam more than 2 years after the course, you cannot use our course as your needed 16 structured hours in mammography.

  • Once I begin logging the ARRT Mammography Clinical Experience Requirements, how long do I have to complete the clinical experience requirements before applying for the ARRT Mammography Board Exam?

    Once you begin documenting the clinical experience requirements, all of the dates in your dashboard must be within 24 months of applying for the ARRT Mammography Certification Exam.

  • What is meant by “Initial Mammographic Imaging Modality” and “New Mammographic Imaging Modality”?

    At the present time there are 3 mammography imaging modalities that exist.

    1. Analog
    2. Full Field Digital (2D)
    3. Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (3D)

    Whichever you perform your 25 supervised mammograms in is considered your “Initial Mammographic Imaging Modality” . Once completing your 25 supervised mammograms in that modality you are able to begin performing mammograms independently and unsupervised in that modality, without the need for an 8 hour course in that modality.  According to MQSA, you will need to obtain 8 hours of training in either of the other 2 modalities before you can perform mammograms independently, and unsupervised, in either of the other 2 modalities.

  • How do I find out where I can sit for the mammography boards?

    A geographic list of the Pearson Vue Testing Centers is listed in Appendix C of the ARRT Mammography Certification Handbook.

  • Can I complete all of my ARRT Clinical Experience Requirements before attending the 40 hour course or do I have to take the course first?

    Yes. (Except if you are from California – read below) If you are from any other state than Caliornia, you can complete all of your Clinical Experience Requirements before attending the course as long as ALL 100 of your mammograms you perform are under direct supervision.  You can NOT perform any unsupervised mammograms until you have both, your 25 supervised mammograms and the 40 hour course.

    ***If you are from California, you will not be able to perform any mammograms, even under supervision, until you have taken the California State Mammogaphy exam and passed it, UNLESS, you are in a radiology school program.  Then you can complete all of your ARRT Mammography Clinical Experience requirements and perform all 100 mammograms, as long as all 100 are supervised.

  • Do I have to take the boards in my state?

    No you may sit for the ARRT mammography boards in the Pearson Vue Testing Center closest to you, even if it is located in a different state.

  • Will I be able to sit for the California State Mammography Exam after completing the MTMI 40 hour Initial Training in Mammography Course?

    Yes.  The only requirement for sitting for the California State Mammography exam is that you are a fully licensed x-ray technologist and have completed a 40 hour mammography training course.

  • Am I qualified to perform mammography independently before taking my mammography registry exam?

    Yes, as long as you have met the standards defined by the MQSA to perform mammography (See answer to the question "How do I get started in mammography).

  • Do I need to have an 8 hour course both in 2D, and in 3D, before being able to perform mammograms without supervision on either machine?

    If you are just beginning in mammography and do NOT have an 8 hour certificate in 2D (Full Field Digital Mammography) or in 3D (Digital Breast Tomosynthesis), then you will want to complete all of your 25 supervised mammograms on either a 2D or a 3D machine if possible.  Whichever you perform your 25 supervised mammograms on, becomes your “Initial Mammography Training Modality” and you will need 8 hours in the opposite before being able to perform mammograms independently on that other modality.  For example, if you perform your 25 supervised mammograms on a 2D machine, then 2D is your initial trianing modality and you will need 8 hours in 3D (Digital Breast Tomosynthesis) before being able to perform mammograms on a 3D machine independently.  If you perform your 25 supervised mammograms on a 3D machine, then 3D is your “Initial Mammography Training Modality” and you will need 8 hours in 2D  (Full Field Digital Mammography) before being able to use a 2D machine for mammograms independently.  If you already have your 8 hours of training in both 2D and 3D before you complete your 25 supervised mammograms, then you can choose either, or both, 2D and/or 3D machines for your 25 supervised mammograms.

     

    If you are just beginning in ammmography and perform some of your 25 supervised mammograms on a 2D machine and some on a 3D machine, and have not had 8 hours in either, you will need 8 hours of training in both 2D and 3D.

  • How do I get started in Mammography?

    You need to follow the law entitled Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) which was passed by Congress in 1992.  First, you must be a registered radiologic technologist either through the ARRT, or have licensure to perform xray through your state, or you have been certified in general radiography by a certification body approved by the FDA.  Second, you will need to complete and document 40 hours of training/education specific to mammography under the supervision of a qualified instructor(s). Third, you must perform a minimum of 25 mammographic examinations under the supervision of a quaified mammography technologist. Fourth, you must obtain 8 hours of training in any “New Mammographic Imaging Modality”

    With the exception of the State of California, the 25 supervised mammograms can be completed before attending the 40 hour course. For California residents, see the next question and answer for further detail.

  • How do I obtain the ARRT Mammography Certification Handbook and how much does it cost?

    You download the Mammography Certification Handbook through their website. https://www.arrt.org/pdfs/Disciplines/Handbooks/MAM-Handbook.pdf

  • The ARRT requires that I have 16 hours of structured education in mammography within 2 years of applying to take the Mammography Registry Exam.   Does the MTMI 40 hour course count as this required 16 structured hours?

    Yes, the ARRT accepts the MTMI 40 hour Initial Training in Mammography Course as meeting the 16 hours of structured education required, as long as you apply for the ARRT mammography Registry Exam within 2 years of taking the course.  If you pass the 2 year mark, you will need to complete an additional 16 structured hours.  (If this happens to you, MTMI also offers a 16 hour Mammography Registry Review course that will count as the 16 structured hours needed).

  • How long do I have to complete both my coursework and 25 supervised mammograms?

    Although it is recommended that the coursework and the 25 supervised mammograms be completed within a 2 year timeframe, under MQSA, there is no time limit to complete both the coursework and 25 supervised mammograms

  • What is the FDA Hotline number if I have any questions regarding MQSA regulations?

    The FDA Hotline number is 1-800-838-7715.

  • Will I ever need to repeat the Initial Training in Mammography 40 hour course?

    No. Under the Mammography Quality Standards Act, MQSA, your 40 hour Initial Training in Mammography Course does NOT expire.  It is good for your entire career as part of your initial mammography training.  However, if you go more than 2 years without performing 200 mammograms, or go more than 3 years without obtaining 15 credits in mammography ce’s, you will fall out of legal status as a mammography technologist under MQSA and need to “Requalify”.  Requalification requires that you bring your mammography credits up to 15 and perform 25 supervised mammograms.  At this point you are once again a legal mammography technologist and will have 6 months to obtain all 200 mammograms. These 200 mammograms will last for the 2 year period but under requalification, you have to obtain all 200 within the 1st 6 months after completing your 25 supervised mammograms.  However, even under Requalification, you will NOT need to ever repeat the entire 40 hour course, unless you elect to.

  • Do I need to have an “M” to be able to perform mammography?

    Under the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) you do not need an “M” to perform mammography independently. You need to be a licensed x-ray technologist who has obtained 40 hours of mammography continuing education and performed 25 mammograms in the presence of a qualified mammographer. (Again, the 25 supervised mammograms will count as 12.5 hours toward the 40 required leaving 27.5 hours of didactic needed). However, you should check with your particular state to find out if an “M” is required under your state law. Usually having your “M” is a facility, state or reimbursement issue and you will be more likely to obtain a job in mammography if you have taken the ARRT mammography boards and received your “M”.

  • How do I keep my Mammography certification active?

    Once you have legally become qualified to perform mammography under MQSA regulations, you need to obtain 15 credits in mammography every 3 years and have documentation of performing 200 mammograms every 2 years in order to keep your qualification.

  • Does the mammography technologist who supervises my 25 supervised mammograms have to have her “M” from the ARRT?

    No.  Keep in mind, it is MQSA who requires you perform 25 supervised mammograms and have a 40 hour initial mammography training course before being allowed to perform mammograms independently, without supervision.  The supervising mammography technologist does have to be a legally qualified mammography technologist under MQSA. (40 hour course, 25 supervised mammograms, in current legal status)

    It is the ARRT who issues the “M” and that is not legally required under MQSA to have before performing mammograms independently, UNLESS that is a state requirement in your state.  Usually, a requirement to have your “M” is a state, or facility requirement but is NOT required under MQSA for the supervising mammography technologist to have her “M”. 

  • What will the MTMI Initial Training Course in Mammography do for me?

    Our course serves 2 purposes.  First, it meets all the MQSA requirements of what needs to be included in an initial mammography training course, which is: Breast Anatomy, Breast Physiology,Breast Positioning, Compression, Quality Assurance/Quality Control, Imaging of patients with breast implants. Secondly, our course serves as an ARRT, and California, Mammography Registry Review course. We will cover all of the ARRT mammography content specifications listed on the ARRT website that can be asked about on the ARRT, and/or the state of California, mammography registry exams.  The ARRT mammography registry exam and the State of California mammography exams are both ARRT exams and both tests pull from the same pool of questions.  Below is the link to the ARRT Content Sepcifications for the mammography registry exam:

    Through June 30, 2020:  https://www.arrt.org/docs/default-source/discipline-documents/mammography/mammography-content-specifications.pdf?sfvrsn=8a6303fc_8

    Effective July 1, 2020: https://www.arrt.org/docs/default-source/discipline-documents/mammography/mammography_content_specifications_2020.pdf?sfvrsn=911006fc_4

  • How do I get started in mammography if I am from California?

    Under California State law in order to enter mammography after becoming a fully licensed mammography technologist, you need to follow the following steps, in the correct order:

    1. Take an approved 40 hour Initial Training in Mammography Course
    2. Apply for the California State Mammography Exam and pass it
    3. Perform 25 supervised mammograms

    If you live in California, the only way you can perform your 25 supervised mammograms before taking, and passing, the California State Mammography exam is if you perform your 25 supervised mammograms outside of the state of Califronia. In this case, you can perform your supervised mammograms before sitting for the California state mammography exam.

    If a California resident, you will still need to abide by MQSA and obtain 8 hours of didactic training in any “New Imaging Modality” – see next question.

  • How do I re-enter the mammography field if I have lost my legal status under MQSA?

    If you were once initially trained under MQSA and either left the field, or lost your legal status, you can regain your legal status by “Requalifying” under MQSA rules.  You will need to bring your mammography credits up to 15 and perform 25 supervised mammograms under supervision of a legal, qualified mammography technologist.  Then you will have 6 months to perform 200 mammograms.

  • Do I need to have completed x-ray school and obtained my RT before taking your Initial Training in Mammography Course?

    No, you may attend our course before receiving your R.T. and it will still count toward your initial training in mammography hours once you receive your R.T.

  • Can my 25 supervised mammograms be performed on both a 2D and a 3D mammography machine or do I have to complete them all on one or the other?

     

    If you are just beginning in mammography and do NOT have an 8 hour certificate in 2D Full Field Digital Mammography or Breast Tomosynthesis, then you must complete all of your 25 supervised mammograms  on either a 2D or a 3D machine.  You can NOT perform some on 2D and some on 3D.  Whichever you perform your 25 supervised mammograms on becomes your initial mammography training modality and you will need 8 hours in the opposite before being able to perform mammograms independently on that other modality.  If you perform your 25 supervised mammograms on a 2D machine, then 2D is your initial mamography training modality and you will need 8 hours in Breast Tomosynthesis before being able to use a 3D machine for performing mammograms independently.  If you perform your 25 supervised mammograms on a 3D machine, then 3D is your initial mammography training modality and you will need 8 hours in Full Field Digital Mammography before being able to use a 2D machine for mammograms independently.  If you already have your 8 hours of didactic training in both 2D and 3D before you complete your 25 supervised mammograms, then you should be able choose either, or both, 2D and/or 3D for your 25 supervised mammograms.

    If you complete the MTMI 5 day Initial Training in Mammography Course, you will receive an 8 hour certificate for Full Field Digital Mammography (2D)  training as part of the 5 day course. If you then went on to perform your 25 supervised mammograms on a 3D Breast Tomosynthesis machine, you will have your 8 hours in both 2D and 3D and will be set for your career.

  • Why is there no post-test?

    Because this educational experience is live and your attendance is monitored, no post-test is necessary, unless you are a Physicist and receiving CAMPEP credit. You will be asked to complete an online survey at the end of each session prior to receiving credit for attendance.

  • Why would I need to call on the telephone?

    Because some PC’s have audio speakers and some don’t. We want everyone to be able to attend and have an excellent audio and visual experience. The call is however, NOT toll free. It could be subject to a change depending on your telephone carrier.

  • Can I go back and review a webinar afterwards?

    No, since it is a live event and not recorded.
