Facility Use of a Cracked Breast Phantom

Policy Guidance Help System logo

Policy:

When a facility is using a cracked or broken breast phantom that interferes with the scoring of the phantom image (simulates masses, fibers or specks, and/or obscures one or more of the test objects) for its Phantom Image QC testing, the inspection question "C/A documented?", which is located on the 3.9.2 Phantom Image QC screen of the inspection software, should be answered "No" (since the use of such a phantom constitutes an uncorrected problem) and an explanation of the citation should be placed in the printable Remarks section for this screen. The facility should be advised to acquire a defect-free phantom.
