Mammography Educators offers the highest level of service and possesses the following outstanding qualities not offered by similar training services:
- Faculty teach ACR supported Positioning Techniques, which are presented in the 1999 AC QC Manual but which have been updated and modified for application for use with FFDM and DBT.
- Mammography Educators’ Positioning Techniques were also modified to follow standardized positioning techniques used in the Laszlo Tabar Clinic after Ms. Miller did a one-week internship with Dr. Tabar and his technologists in Falun, Sweden.
- Updated Positioning Techniques for FFDM and DBT were designed and presented by Louise C. Miller, RTRM, for the Society of Breast Imaging (a subsidiary of ACR) in it’s Webinar Series ‘Positioning in a Digital World’ which was attended by 1000s of technologists and Radiologists (2017)
- These updated teaching methods have been presented at numerous National Breast Imaging Conferences including the Society of Breast Imaging/ACR National Breast Cancer Conference as well as NCoBC and for major academic institutions, including Harvard Medical School/MGH, Mayo Clinic, multiple University of California campuses, Emory University, Kaiser Permenente, and Elizabeth Wende Breast Center. Additionally, these techniques have been taught during international courses in Israel, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Canada, & Costa Rica among others.
- All Positioning Trainers are MQSA-Qualified.
- All Positioning Trainers have been personally trained and mentored by Louise Miller in The Miller Method so techniques are consistent, proficient, efficient and ergonomically sound.
- All Positioning Trainers have extensive background teaching and working in academic medicine and/or SBI Centers of Excellence.
- Mammography Educators Positioning Technique is the only technique that has been analyzed and published (AJR, Dec 2017) that sets criteria for FFDM and DBT and establishes criteria for optimal image quality.
- Not only will radiologists see an immediate improvement in image quality (inclusion of more breast tissue and meet ACR standards), but many radiologists have reported the diagnosis of cancers not seen on previous images utilizing other techniques prior to our updated, standardized training.
