Must a facility perform the daily processor QC tests on days when mammograms are performed but not processed?

Policy Guidance Help System logo

Facilities are required to perform these tests only on the days they process mammograms. However, FDA recommends that facilities that routinely process mammograms less than 5 days/week perform the daily processor QC tests on additional days. The additional tests can provide the facility more information to predict trends and thereby identify and correct problems earlier.
