Must all mammographic units have magnification capabilities?

Policy Guidance Help System logo

The requirement to provide magnification capabilities is limited to those units used to perform noninterventional problem-solving mammography. The requirement does not apply to units used only for normal screening procedures. "Noninterventional problem-solving mammography" means noninvasive mammographic procedures requiring techniques beyond those used in standard screening of asymptomatic patients.
