Do general supervisors of mammography technologists, medical physicists, or interpreting physicians have to meet any requirements under MQSA?

No. There are no requirements for general supervisory duties under the regulations. However, if a general supervisor, in addition to his/her general supervisory duties, also performs or directly supervises one of the three tasks outlined in the regulations (perform mammography, read and interpret images, or conduct on site physics surveys), he/she must meet the appropriate requirements for the tasks he/she performs or directly supervises and their records must be retained for the facility’s annual MQSA inspection.
