The ordinary 2D Breast ultrasonography is thought to be troublesome on the grounds that it is hard to to tell apart between normal or benign fibrocystic lesions from early pathologic lesions. Currently with the improvement and accessibility of 3d Ultrasonography , identification of lesions from benign changes has become easier. Some studies have demonstrated that 3D ultrasonography is a better device for screening young patients and patients with dense breasts. 3D breast ultrasound can be additionally utilized as an adjunct to plain film/ computerized mammography or digital breast tomosysnthesis (DBT).

Ultrasound CQR and Structured Education


The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® (ARRT®) has implemented a system of Structured Education and Continuing Qualification Requirements (CQR). The new requirements do not apply to Radiologic Technologists certified before January 1, 2011. However, technologists who first got their certificate on or after 1/1/2011 have a time-limited license that is valid for 10 years. Renewing certification for an additional 10 years requires completion of the CQR process. Also, to remain compliant with ARRT® rules and regulations and the Standard of Ethics, R.T.®’s are required to complete a renewal process annually and continuing education requirements every two years. R.T.®s in Sonography need CE credits related directly to this subject. This is known as structured education.
