  1. Effects of a program to train radiologic technologists to identify abnormalities on mammograms.

    Article - En anglais


    To assess whether radiologic technologists could be successfully trained to identify abnormalities on mammograms.


    Eight radiologic technologists from two different institutions took a pretest, underwent an 8-hour training course followed by a period of preceptorship, and then took a posttest.

    Seven radiologists also took the pretest and posttest, which consisted of evaluating 1,238 two-view screening examinations, including 318 biopsy-proved cancers.


    Overall, technologists at institution 1 had lower sensitivity (78%) at the pretest, which improved at the posttest (90%). Technologists at institution 2 had lower specificity at the pretest (44%), which improved on the posttest (64%).
