Title FDA Certified Mammography Facilities, 2012. (Raw Data on CD-ROM).
Publication Date 2012
Media Count 1one CD-ROM
Personal Author N/A
Abstract Information contained on the CD-ROM is an annual product consisting of 4 updates received quarterly from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Each quarter lists all (more than 9,000) mammography facilities (except Veterans Affairs facilities) certified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as meeting quality standards for equipment, personnel and practices under the Mammography Quality Standards Act of 1992 (MQSA). The effectiveness of mammography as a cancer detection technique is directly related to the quality of mammography procedures. In response to concerns about the uncertain or insufficient quality of mammography being provided throughout the states, Congress enacted the MQSA. This statute establishes requirements for the accreditation, certification and inspection of facilities and aims to strengthen quality. Facilities must be certified to lawfully perform mammography and to be reimbursed by Medicare and Medicaid for mammography services. The records are listed alphabetically by facility names. The list provides the facility address and phone number.
