I am the physician in question 11. Once I have completed my initial requirements, can I independently read both screen-film and FFDM examinations?

No. Because your initial training was only in screen-film, under MQSA you are qualified to read only screen-film examinations independently. In order to read FFDM examinations, you will need to obtain and document eight hours of training in FFDM.  900.12(a)(1)(ii)(C).
