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® 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® 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.

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 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 intial 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.
We do not recommend any CE course specifically for the purpose of ARRT test prep, nor does the ARRT endorse any specific material for the purpose of studying for any specific test. The ARRT publishes the mammography content specifications, which give 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 MQSA requirements, the ARRT has additional requirements to establish eligibility for the exam. Please see our Mammography Certification Checklist.
