NMD Training Webinar Series

Boot Camp: Part 1 and 2

Looking to get the most out of your enrollment in the National Mammography Database (NMD)? Watch this informative two-part webinar series — ACR National Mammography Database Boot Camp — to learn the basics of NMD registry data entry, submission, and reports retrieval.

This free two-part boot camp program features insights from Robert Rosenberg, MD, NMD Committee Chair, Gretchen Merriss, NMD committee member, and ACR staff. View the recordings and slides below. Access the Q&A from the webinar in this FAQ.

Not familiar with NMD? 
The database is a quality improvement tool that leverages the data already collected under the Mammography Quality Standards Act federal mandate. Participants receive reports that provide benchmarks and comparisons to peer facilities and exceed the FDA’s audit data collection requirements.

Look out for the next webinar in the NMD Training Series for future opportunities to learn how to improve your NMD user experience!

Learning Objectives


  1. Recognize how registry data can be used for facility benchmarking and quality improvement.
  2. Explain the connection between entering accurate, complete, and timely data for maximizing the value of registry participation.
  3. Upload complete data into the NMD and resolve validation and rejection errors to maximize the value of registry participation.
