Online Training Session for Mammographers performing DBT

In response to a new wave of DBT equipment being introduced across the NHSBSP, the National Breast Imaging Academy has developed a half-day training course for mammographers new to performing DBT. This will be delivered entirely online, making training cost- and time-efficient for delegates and departments, and meeting Covid-19 restrictions.
