This PowerPoint is from the July 2010 U.S. Access Board’s Medical Diagnostic Equipment (MDE) Public Information Meeting presented by AAHD’s Janet Kreitman. The slides include information on AAHD’s two Susan G. Komen for the Cureïƒ¢ grants that AAHD received in 2007 and 2009-10 and recommendations based on the women’s survey from the grants, conversations with staff at surveyed mammography sites, and other past studies. Issues to be considered when designing a mammography machine and mammography positioning chair recommendations are included. Both technologists and women with disabilities should be involved in the design stages of mammography equipment as well as new positioning chairs to offer suggestions which would increase accessibility, and follow up training of technologists is crucial.
