Introduction to Breast Screening, IR(ME)R2017 and Quality Assurance

The course will cover the latest guidance regarding compliance with the IR(ME)R 2017 regulations within the screening programme. This is a timely opportunity given the recent updated guidance in January 2023.  All individuals working as a duty holder under the IR(ME)R 2017 regulations in the screening programme should benefit from this update.

 

The course content has been developed to ensure that all aspects of the IR(ME)R regulations are covered.  Areas of focus will be on IR(ME)R Employer’s procedures, local QA requirements and understanding of services that your MPE provides.

 

Course topics will include:

  • Physics of Breast Imaging
  • QA reasoning and justifications
  • Understanding of physics equipment surveys
  • IRMER regulations
  • Employers Procedures
  • An overview of additional support from your MPE
