I'm an interpreting physician and received training in digital image receptors used for stereotactic biopsy. Can that training count toward the 8 hours of training specific to FFDM?

Training received in digital image receptors used for stereotactic biopsy can count toward the 8 hours of training specific to FFDM if the training is essentially the same as that being given for FFDM. For example, if the interpreting physician received training in the manipulation of stereotactic digital images, and the FFDM manipulation of images is essentially the same as with stereotactic, that training could count toward the 8 hours of training specific to FFDM.
