National Breast Imaging

In May 2020, the National Breast Imaging Academy (NBIA), in partnership with Health Education England elearning for healthcare (elfh), launched their elearning programme for radiographers, radiologists and breast clinicians.  This is the eleventh update about the programme.

Some of the most popular sessions in the elearning programme include Breast Imaging Services in the UK, Image Interpretation and Mammography: Working in a Mobile Unit. Learners commented that session content was “very helpful and informative” with “good presentation and explanations”.

The full programme of elearning sessions is due to be completed in 2021 to support your training needs. If you would like to share your thoughts on the resources and input into the evaluation of the NBIA elearning programme, please visit our survey.

There are 107 elearning sessions available on the elfh Hub.  The latest sessions to be added include:

  • Mammographic Imaging of the Augmented Breast

Additional sessions will be added to the elearning catalogue as soon as they are ready.

What can I expect from the elearning sessions?
