To inspire breast imaging specialists to raise their standards of excellence and ultimately contribute to the early detection of breast cancer.
To develop high-quality, consistent methods for breast imaging through unique and engaging educational services and products.
Louise Miller and Amy Chatten founded Mammography Educators in 2013. Prior to this date, Louise Miller led the highly successfully Quality, Care and Commitment (QCC) Mammography Seminars. This educational platform provided didactic and hands-on training for over 50,000 radiologic technologists in the United States and Canada. Ms. Miller has also consulted at over 300 Breast Centers worldwide.
Mammography Educators focuses on establishing high-quality, consistent methods of breast imaging. We provide three essential types of services. mammography consulting, conferences, and in-person and online initial training. In addition to our services, we also develop educational products to support our mission and vision.
Mammography Educators commits to providing an exemplary experience for every technologist, administrator, and radiologist with whom we work.
The Miller Method for mammography positioning prepares the technologist to understand “the why” and “the how” of patient positioning for high quality mammograms. When technologists use the principles of positioning for general x-ray, which are based on the understanding of correlational anatomy, they are better able to identify areas for improvement in their images. The Miller Method includes an hour and a half lecture on correlational anatomy and the “Breast MAP.” After laying these foundations, technologists participate in a positioning demonstration and workshop with a model as well as one-on-one hands-on positioning practice in the clinic setting. From its inception, Mammography Educators uses a data-proven technique based on the principles of consistency, reproducibility, efficiency, proficiency, and the proper use of body ergonomics.
