This course focuses on the treatment of breast cancer and the reconstruction of the breast. It is an authoritative and sensitive book that has helped countless women assess their options, familiarize themselves with the techniques used in treating breast cancer, and prepare themselves for what to expect medically and emotionally from reconstructive surgery.
This course meets the FDA's definition of education acceptable for the mammography continuing education requirement for Mammographers.
In addition to Mammographers, this course will be of interest to any technologist interested in breast cancer and treatments.
For further study in mammography, we also offer Breast Cancer, another course which provides 53 ASRT Category A credits. For those requiring less hours, we also offer Managing Breast Cancer Risk, which focuses primarily on breast cancer risk factors and mitigation. These courses also meet FDA requirements for continuing education.
