What facility cleanliness measures are required under MQSA and what constitutes acceptable documentation of such measures?

Policy Guidance Help System logo

MQSA does not specify cleanliness measures. However, the facility must establish and follow adequate protocols (such as those found in the latest ACR Mammography QC Manual) for darkroom, screen, and viewbox cleanliness. Acceptable documentation would be written procedures for performing the corresponding cleaning activities, with records showing that each was conducted at the designated frequency, and was followed by the appropriate corrective actions when needed.
