FDA-Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA): This Act requires Mammography facilities across the nation to meet uniform quality standards. Congress passed this law in 1992 to assure high quality mammography for early breast cancer detection. Under the law, all Mammography facilities must:
- Be accredited by an FDA-approved accreditation body,
- Be certified by the FDA, or its State, as meeting the standards
- Undergo an annual MQSA inspection
- Prominently display the certificate issued by the agency
The Uniontown Hospital Mammography Department is inspected annually and is certified by the FDA.
