I met all the radiologic technologist initial requirements prior to April 28, 1999, exempting me from the increased initial requirements found in 900.12(a)(2)(ii) of the final regulations including the 8 hours of training in each mammographic modality used. Does that mean that I am also exempt from the similar requirement found in 900.12.(a)(2)(iii)(E)?

No. The “grandparenting” allowed for radiologic technologists applies only to the requirements of 900.12(a)(2)(ii). All technologists beginning to use a new mammographic modality after April 28, 1999, must have 8 hours of training in that mammographic modality prior to independent use.
