Mammography Safety Notifications

Under the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) of 1992, the FDA requires that all mammography facilities meet certain high quality standards. When a facility fails to meet the standards, the FDA requires it to notify affected patients and their referring health care providers that their recent mammograms could have unreliable results.

In the cases where a facility cannot or will not demonstrate to FDA's satisfaction that all affected patients were successfully notified, the FDA posts Mammography Safety Notifications to this website.
