About Us

OUR VISION

To inspire breast imaging specialists to raise their standards of excellence and ultimately contribute to the early detection of breast cancer.

OUR MISSION

To develop high-quality, consistent methods for breast imaging through unique and engaging educational services and products.

BACKGROUND

Mammography Educators was founded by Louise Miller and Amy Chatten in 2013.  Prior to this date, Louise Miller led the highly successfully Quality, Care and Commitment (QCC) Mammography Seminars, which provided didactic and hands-on training for over 50,000 radiologic technologists in the United States and Canada. Ms. Miller has also consulted at over 300 Breast Centers worldwide.

Mammography Educators focuses on establishing high-quality, consistent methods of breast imaging. We provide three essential types of services: mammography consulting, mammography conferences, and initial mammography training. We also develop educational products to support our mission and vision.

Mammography Educators is committed to providing an exemplary experience for every technologist, administrator, and radiologist with whom we work.

OUR METHODS

The Miller Method for mammography positioning prepares the technologist to understand “the why” and “the how” of patient positioning for high quality mammograms.  Using the principles of positioning for general x-ray, which are based on the understanding of correlational anatomy, technologists are better able to identify areas for improvement in their images.  The method includes an hour and a half lecture on correlational anatomy and the “Breast MAP,” positioning demonstration and workshop with a model, and one-on-one hands-on positioning practice in the clinic setting using a data-proven technique based on the principles of consistency, reproducibility, efficiency, proficiency, and the proper use of body ergonomics.
