Accreditation document – The Radiographer

An optimal quality of mammography is one of the fundamental requirements for successful breast cancer screening programmes.



Screening should enable the detection of subtle abnormalities so that tumours can be detected at an early stage. Each screening mammogram therefore has to comply with the highest quality standards with regards to positioning technique and physico-technical quality. The LRCB has drawn up the quality criteria for these standards.
