Knowledge of breast anatomy is critical to being a successful mammography technologist. The ability to properly position and critique the images depends on the technologist’s knowledge of breast anatomy. Positioning the breast is not an exact science and many times the technologist will have to be creative and modify positioning to accommodate the patient’s body habitus. But one thing that we know for sure is that it is the mammography technologist’s knowledge of the breast – or lack thereof – that will determine her ability to achieve proper positioning.
This fantastic course will discuss gross breast anatomy and the physiological changes that occur as a woman ages. The visualization of the varying appearances of breast tissue on the mammogram will be discussed as we take anatomy and physiology to a new level. Remember: What the radiologist can see on the mammogram depends on how well the technologist does her job. When it comes to finding early breast cancer which can be no bigger than the tip of a straight pin - Close Does Not Count!
