If the physician did not have this training during residency, would it have to be category I continuing education? What about applications training from the manufacturer of the new mammographic modality?

The initial eight hours training in the new mammographic modality does not have to be category I training. FDA accept applications training from the manufacturer in the new mammographic modality. Other examples of training in the new mammographic modality could include manufacturer’s instruction materials, residency training, or special training courses.
