Mammography Initial Training Packages

Interested in becoming a mammographer or getting certified in mammography? Get all the required educational hours with the X-Ray Lady! Our two mammography training packages meet both MQSA and ARRT® certification & registration educational requirements at once!

Our self-study packages cover all subjects required by the MQSA:

  • Breast anatomy and physiology
  • Positioning and compression
  • Quality assurance/quality control
  • 8 hours of digital mammography
  • 8 hours of digital breast tomosynthesis – deluxe package only
  • Imaging women with breast implants

You may complete the courses in any order, as many at once as desired, and at any time. If sitting for the ARRT® certification & registration examination, you have two years from the completion of all eligibility requirements to sit for the examination.

Save on travel costs or missed time at work. Study at your own pace when convenient for you! If more than one person wants to complete the package, save even more by ordering at a test only price for each additional person and sharing the books.

Note: In addition to completing 40 hours of education, MQSA requirements state that you must complete 25 hands-on mammography exams under the direct supervision of a qualified instructor. Please see our Mammography Certification Checklist.

The Mammography Deluxe Training Package includes…

  1. Breast Anatomy & Pathology in Mammography (8 CE)
  2. Introduction to Digital Mammography (8 CE)
  3. Breast Implants and Quality Assurance in Mammography (8.5 CE)
  4. Introduction to Stereotactic Breast Biopsy, 2nd Edition (3.5 CE)
  5. Introduction to Breast Tomosynthesis (14.5 CE)

The package is available shipped via USPS or as eBooks via email.
Save 10% when ordering the package rather than purchasing each course separately!

  1. Mammography & Breast Imaging Prep (32 CE)
  2. Introduction to Digital Mammography (8 CE)

Books Sold Separately. Call our office for more information.
Tests Only $155


Which One Should I Get?

The answer to this question depends on personal preference, budget, and facility requirements (does your facility have DBT/3D machines?):

  • They both cover MQSA and ARRT® certification & registration educational requirements.
  • The Deluxe package meets the 8-hour initial training requirement for digital mammography AND digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT, or 3D mammography). The Basic only meets the initial requirement for digital mammography.
  • The Deluxe package is available in an eBook format; the Basic is not.
  • The Basic has two courses while the Deluxe has five.


ARRT® Post-Primary Certification

We do not recommend any CE course specifically for the purpose of ARRT® certification and registration test prep, nor does the ARRT® endorse any specific material for the purpose of studying for any specific test. Purchase and/or completion of this package, or any other test preparation materials regardless of the author, does not guarantee subsequent passing of the registry exam. The ARRT® has published the mammography content specifications, which gives a detailed outline of the covered topics and procedures, as guidance for the exam. Registrants are encouraged to consult this outline as well as a variety of sources to adequately prepare for the test. In addition to the MQSA requirements, the ARRT® has additional requirements to establish eligibility for the certification and registration exam. Please see our Mammography Certification Information & Checklist
