Wake Tech’s Mammography program is a two-semester certificate program. It is offered to ARRT registered radiologic technologists and radiography students.  Most of the classroom course work is offered online and students will gain lab experiences using a state-of-the-art 3D mammography system.  Clinical rotations are located at various imaging facilities.  Graduates of the program will meet the Mammography Quality Standards Act’s initial training requirements and may be eligible to apply to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologic (ARRT) post-primary certification in Mammography.  Once registered, students will be able to perform mammograms in hospitals and imaging facilities.
