Our mammography unit has a single image receptor holder that can accommodate both the 24 X 30 cm and 18 X 24 cm image receptors, but has only one size grid. Is that acceptable?

Policy Guidance Help System logo

No. Each film-screen mammography system must be equipped to allow operation with both referenced image receptor sizes AND be provided with moving grids matched to each image receptor size provided with the system. Having a system equipped with only a single size moving grid, even if the device is capable of accepting both size cassettes, would not meet the requirements.
