Molecular breast imaging (MBI) technologists must have a combination of both nuclear medicine skills and mammographic positioning skills. Currently, no formal programs offer this type of hybrid technologist training. The purpose of this perspective is to provide a best-practices guide for technologists performing MBI. Familiarity with best practices may aid in obtaining high-quality MBI examinations by decreasing the likelihood of image artifacts, positioning problems, and other factors that contribute to falsenegative or false-positive findings.
