The Radiological Technologist Audit is organized and administered as a practice by the Mammography Technologist Quality Assurance Representative (MTQAR), who is a senior mammography technologist in that practice.
1. Each technologist will randomly pull 10 screening mammography cases from the past six months for each Technical Audit Worksheet (Appendix D) to be completed within a six week period.
Note: For sites/clinics/facilities that perform a small number of screening mammograms, if there is an insufficient volume of screening mammograms to meet the minimum 10 cases, the remainder can be supplemented by using craniocaudal and mediolateral oblique views from diagnostic mammograms or twice the number of unilateral views.
2. Each technologist completes the audit process within the time period. Review may take place as a team or in small groups. It is the intent that in due course the technologist audits may be performed individually.
3. The MTQAR will collect the audit sheets when completed and collate the results for the practice. Give that information to the Reporting Mammography Radiologist, who will then report it in de-identified aggregate fashion in the standardized Radiological Technologist Audit Result Letter to the BIQAC of the ABCSP (see Appendix C).
