X-Ray Film

Policy Guidance Help System logo

Citation:

900.12(b)(11): X-ray film. The facility shall use X-ray film for mammography that has been designated by the film manufacturer as appropriate for mammography.

Questions:

  1. What does "designated by the film manufacturer as appropriate for mammography" mean, and how does the facility establish that they meet this requirement?
  2. Are we required to use a specific type of laser film when printing full field digital images?
