Eligible to earn certification in mammography from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)
The Mammography undergraduate certificate program provides education and training in digital mammography. Mammography is specialized medical imaging that is critical to the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women. Specially trained radiographers, also known as mammographers, are members of breast-imaging teams within health care organizations. Using low-dose x-rays, mammographers image breasts to help physicians look for or track the progress of cancer or benign growths and determine treatment. Mammographers work in hospitals, physician’s offices, and other healthcare facilities.
The Mammography certificate meets requirements set by the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) for minimum didactic and clinical standards for mammographers. Graduates of the certificate are eligible to earn certification in mammography from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
