A mammogram is the gold standard in diagnosing breast cancer. Patients coming for a mammogram need to experience care, compassion, reassurance, professionalism, education, and often counseling. A mammography technologist often has to provide all these in addition to performing the mammogram.

Preparing for mammography is a very important step and requires good communication with the technologist who will perform it. Communication will relax the patient and reduce the chance of suboptimal imaging of the pectoral muscles. It will also help in identifying sensitive breasts and the reason behind the sensitivity.

For all these reasons, this course was designed to help you understand how to communicate, prepare, and interact with patients, before, during, and after the examination. It will as well tackle around 20 common myths about breast cancer. The Patient Preparation and Education in Mammography Screening course consists of 1 module followed by a post-test.
