A technologist works in a small facility with a limited number of patients and several mammography technologists, so meeting the 200 examination requirement over a 24-month period will be difficult.

If he or she assists another technologist while performing an examination, can both technologists count the exams they perform together?Policy Guidance Help System logo

Yes, as long as both technologists are present with the patient during the examination, are both directly involved in positioning of the patient, and both evaluate the resulting images from the examination. For an instructor directing a student in the positioning of the patient and approving this positioning prior to the x-ray exposure, both the instructor and the student can count the examination.
