We have limited space in our film flasher and do not want to use "stick-on" labels. Can we abbreviate our facility name and address?

Policy Guidance Help System logo

The intent of this regulation is to ensure that, in the event the films become separated from any other identifying materials, the originating mammography facility can be readily identified and the films can be returned or the facility contacted, if necessary. Abbreviations of the facility name, city, State and zip code (5 vs. 9 digit) are acceptable as long as the abbreviations clearly identify these items and are not ambiguous.
