The medical physicist is responsible for performing the facility’s annual survey (which includes all the annual quality control tests specified in 900.12(e)(5), the phantom image quality test, the other (new) mammographic modality tests, as well as evaluation of the quality control tests and results that are normally conducted by the QC technologist), and providing the facility with a report of the annual survey. He or she is also responsible for mammography equipment evaluations (when applicable).
