1 This number is an aggregate of the total number of procedures performed annually as reported by facilities to their accreditation bodies. Facilities are asked to disclose this information at their initial accreditation, and then at the time of their re-accreditation, which takes place once every three years. FDA began collecting these data in 1998. The aggregate does not reflect the current number of procedures performed at these facilities, but only the numbers reported by them during the three-year period prior to the current date. We have aggregated only the numbers reported by certified, non-Veterans Administration facilities.
2 FFDM - Full Field Digital Mammography unit.
3 DBT - Digital Breast Tomosynthesis.
4 Facilities with DBT also have FFDM so the DBT facilities count is included within the FFDM facilities count.
