Job Description for Mammographer

Mammographers examines human breasts to enable medical diagnosis, performing X-rays and other medical imagining of the chest area, When a patient arrives for a mammogram, the mammographer completes an intake form and initial interview, in which they discuss the reasons for the mammogram and address any questions or concerns. To test properly, the mammographer must ensure that each breast is properly positioned within the mammogram machine to get a clear view of the tissues involved. The mammographer then uses low-does radiation to acquire clear images, taking special care to follow procedures that minimize patients’ and medical personnel’s exposure to unnecessary radiation levels. Once the needed images have been acquired, the images are examined to ensure they are sharp and clear enough; if they are not, the mammographer takes additional images. In some cases, if they have the proper training, the mammographer may inform the patient about what is visible in the images. Generally, the patient later meets with a doctor who has examined the images to discuss the results.
