  • MQSA cert once in practice.

    Posted by mouzaalj_95 on January 18, 2021 at 11:30 am

    Does anyone understand the process to become MQSA certified to read breast again once already in practice? I am IR trained and four years out of training and havent read mammo since residency but our practice work is going up and were trying to recert several people to take care of screeners. I know theres a requirement for 240 exams and some CME in tomo but the requirements on MQSA website are confusing. Is there a place to submit these or do you just assume you have it after doing these? The website has no place to submit anything. If you take ACRs courses in Reston is that enough to be totally ready to go?

    Seriously, no one on this forum knows how to start reading mammos once already in practice? No body has ever had this come up?

      Search old threads.

      This comes up every 90 days.

      People have given step by step numerous times.

          Youre welcome.
          Topics of certain kind come up all the time.
          I can think of at least three or four times over the last two years someone has given a very detailed answer. I am past this point so I do not remember all the ins and outs, but hopefully, the information will guide you.

          Go to ACR course and you’ll be fine certificate-wise.

          Now being comfortable doing mammo is another story.
