How long have you been a mammographer? Do you have any aches and pains from the daily creative positions you put yourself in to achieve the best possible images?

This occurs more frequently among mammographers, as our job is very taxing on our bodies. We are all able to perform that quick, efficient and precise mammogram, but are we truly getting the best possible images for our patients without causing injury to ourselves?

In mammography, time, efficiency and accuracy in positioning will help save lives. But while we focus on attention to detail, we also need to focus on the well-being and safety of our own bodies. 

In this session, learn what the ACR requirements are for proper mammography positioning, what we can do as competent technologists to consistently achieve them, and learn ergonomic ways to protect ourselves.

Learning Objectives


List the ACR positioning requirements for CC, MLO, and ML views


Effectively position, using good body mechanics, while utilizing new positioning techniques to image an adequate amount of breast tissue


Identify new techniques for positioning patients


Communicate and effectively relax the patient for her upcoming mammography procedure


Utilize multiple techniques in order to position difficult patients in various patient positions
