Effectiveness of feedback: the students’ perspective
While effective feedback has frequently been identified as a key strategy in learning and teaching, little known research has focused on students’ perceptions of feedback and the contribution
Breast compression in mammography: how much is enough?
The results indicated that 24% of women did not experience a difference in thickness when the compression was reduced, which is an important new finding because the aim of breast compression is to reduce breast thickness.
A review of methods of clinical image quality evaluation in mammography.
Low adherence to ACR and EU Guidelines has resulted in considerable variation in the evaluation methods used in research studies, and the implications are considerable both for evaluation of image quality in research outcomes and clinical practice.
Mammography discomfort: a holistic perspective derived from women's experiences
A conceptual framework was developed that demonstrates the contributors to mammography discomfort and the relationships between these as identified by the women and has important implications for clinical practice and future research.
The application of breast compression in mammography: a new perspective
The differences in breast thickness reduction demonstrated in this study using current criteria for the application of breast compression have the potential to compromise small cancer detection in breast screening.
Mammography image quality: Analysis of evaluation criteria using pectoral muscle presentation
It is recommended that aspects of current image evaluation criteria relating to the presentation of the pectoral muscle should be modified to include quantified ranges to reduce inherent subjectivity and variability in interpretation.

This edition has been updated to include advances in current breast imaging modalities such as mammography, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and percutaneous interventions and significant emerging technologies, for example digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), are presented using evidence-based methods.
Comparison of the validity and reliability of two image classification systems for the assessment of mammogram quality
Both PGMI and EAR have poor reliability and validity in evaluating mammogram quality and EAR is not a suitable alternative to PGMI, which must be improved if it is to be useful.
Reader practice in mammography screen reporting in Australia
This study has provided important evidence of the need to investigate adverse influences on concentration during mammography screen reporting by using an original questionnaire distributed to screen readers in Australia.
Continuing Professional Development: the perceptions of radiographers in New South Wales
Purpose: The Australian Institute of Radiography's Continuing Professional Development programme provides activities for radiographers, radiation therapists and sonographers. This article aims to
