Mammography

Coming Spring 2013!

The Mammography course provides education and clinical experience for post-primary practice in Mammography. Core topics include the mammographer’s scope of practice, testing quality of equipment and film development, using proper positioning techniques and special procedures, digital mammography, and the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA). Upon completion, students may be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist post-primary certification in mammography.

Registration for the Mammography course is by completed application only. Classes are capped based on assigned classrooms and clinical sites. Students will be placed in their desired class on a first come, first served basis, once the completed application is received, reviewed, and payment is made.

Students may register on the Tarboro campus or Rocky Mount campus in the continuing education department. Application and registration should occur prior to the first day of class. Applications will be reviewed for accuracy and completion and the student will be registered for a class based on availability. Classes must be paid for at the time of registration. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
