Miranda Polselli, B.S., RT (R)(M)(BD)(ARRT)
Miranda Polselli is a lead mammography technologist. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Radiological Sciences from Armstrong State University in 2011. She is an active member of the American Society of Radiological Technologists (ASRT) and certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) with certifications in Radiography, Mammography, and Bone Densitometry.
Miranda is proficient in screen film mammography, standard 2D digital mammography, breast tomosythesis, breast ultrasounds, hereditary breast cancer genetic screening, stereotactic ultrasounds, and MRI guided breast biopsies. She has served on prior breast interdisciplinary conference boards and is an excellent liaison for patients, primary care and specialty physicians, nurse navigators, and breast imaging radiologists.
Miranda is an expert in regulatory compliance with the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). She has successfully overseen numerous new mammography unit installations and has achieved a one hundred percent success rate on all prior MQSA inspections by competently coordinating American College of Radiology (ACR) clinical image approval, physicist certifications, Quality Control and Quality Assurance programs for both personnel and radiological equipment, and radiology reporting and record keeping.
Miranda believes that patient mammograms can and should be a relatively painless and enjoyable process and that a positive experience not only increases patient satisfaction, but also increases patient participation in breast cancer screening. She believes that easily and efficiently providing mammograms and timely reporting at the level of the primary care physician is one of the best ways this can be achieved.
Ryan Polselli, M.D., DABR
Dr. Ryan Polselli is a leading expert in the field of breast imaging. He graduated medical school from the University of South Florida in 2006 and completed a residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Emory University in 2011. He then completed a fellowship in Breast Imaging as an Associate Professor of Medicine at Grady Memorial Hospital and the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University.
During Dr. Polselli’s fellowship training, he was mentored by faculty considered to be some of the world’s leading authorities in the field of Breast Imaging, including original members of the first BI-RADS committee responsible for the current FDA adopted standard in mammography reporting used today, members of the ACR appropriateness advisory committees, and other distinguished faculty members.
Dr. Polselli began his clinical career as the Director of Breast Imaging at Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah, Georgia. During his tenure, he is most proud of increasing the quality of care for patients in the community by significantly increasing the cancer detection rate in patients undergoing mammography as well as implementing cutting edge diagnostic technology such as MRI guided breast biopsies.
While Dr. Polselli was medical director, the hospital was awarded the coveted designation of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) from the American College of Radiology, as well as full accreditation
from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), and full accreditation from the Joint Commission of Healthcare Accreditation (JCAHO).
Dr. Polselli is the appointed lead interpreting breast imaging radiologist for 4 successful outpatient imaging centers. He interprets over 20,000 2D and 3D mammograms per year and has performed well over 1,000 stereotactic guided, ultrasound guided, and MRI guided breast biopsies. He holds patents for several breast imaging medical devices which improve patient care and reduce medical errors.
Dr. Polselli believes the biggest opportunity for improvement in the field of Breast Imaging currently lies with increasing the quality of mammographic interpretation through the use of fellowship trained breast imagers and making breast cancer screening more accessible and convenient to patients by directly linking mammography services to patient primary care. It is this belief that is the basis for MammoLink®
