Welcome to the Mammography Technologist Program

Mammography is a specialized branch of medical imaging that uses low doses of ionizing radiation to image breast tissue. Mammography technologists are specialized practitioners who are in charge of producing images to detect breast tissue abnormalities and early signs of breast cancer. Certification in mammography requires primary licensing in Radiography prior to obtaining the specialized education and clinical experience needed to sit for the licensing examination through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. For more information about the profession, visit the ARRT website.

The mammography certificate program at Austin Community College is a single semester program offered in the Fall semester. Coursework will be completed in person and online. Specific details can be found on the program degree map.  Learn more about the program by following the links below and visiting the FAQ page.
