    About this class

    This program instructs Mammography Technologists in basic and intermediate positioning following the ACR recommendations on Senographe systems. Instruction is delivered by a GE Mammography Applications Specialist at the customer facility and focuses on system operation and patient procedures. This training produces the best results when a group of 2 to 4 Mammography Technologists is dedicated to the complete training session. It is also critical that key Radiologists are available to direct patient procedures and review images. In addition, the patient schedule should be modified as indicated in the agenda to allow time for instruction.
