Film for radiographers: Mammography step by step

The Cancer Registry of Norway has made an information film for radiographers. The film shows how the radiographer can ensure good positioning techniques for mammography, for front and oblique images.

The film is a supplement to the Quality assurance manual for radiography (in Norwegian), and has been developed in collaboration with the expert group for radiography and the breast centres at Akershus university hospital and Nordland Hospital. It was produced with support from the Norwegian Radiographers' Association.
