I'm a medical physicist 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 medical physicist received training in the performance of a QC test for stereotactic digital image receptors, and the FFDM QC test is essentially the same as the stereotactic QC test, that training could count toward the 8 hours of training specific to FFDM.
