I perform screening and diagnostic mammography imaging in a fast paced breast center. I am extremely proficient in performing stereotactic biopsies and needle localizations, as well as assisting radiologists with ductograms, ultrasound core biopsies, ultrasound needle localizations, and cyst aspirations. I also have experience operating an Aurora dedicated breast MRI unit and assisting with breast MRI guided biopsies. In performing MRI imaging, I also assessed patient for MRI safety and conducted venipuncture. In addition, I perform bone density exams (currently ARRT registry eligible). I have assured that the six full field digital mammography units have remained MQSA compliant yearly since 2007 as the Quality Control technologist. I have also overseen the necessary tests and paperwork to help the facility continue ACR accreditation in mammography and stereotactic biopsy. I have worked closely with medical physicists to ensure that all equipment is compliant with MQSA standards.
I am also the mammography technologist supervisor. I am in charge of staffing, scheduling, hiring, and discipline within the department. Since 2008, I have managed between five and eight technologists at any given time.
Throughout my tenure at the facility, I have operated various Hologic and Bennett mammography units and both a Hologic Multi-care Stereotactic table and a Fischer stereotactic table. I have used a wide variety of biopsy devices in both stereotactic and ultrasound suites.
I have a Tennessee State License for X-Ray Operator and Bone Density.
I have prided myself in excellent patient care. I strive to treat each of my patients like family to help reduce their anxieties and increase their trust, both in me and in the facility.
