Mammography Team Receives Perfect Score on FDA Inspection

Technician reviewing mammogram.

Our Mammography team recently received a perfect score, with no adverse observations, on its annual FDA Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) inspection.

The MQSA certification is designed to ensure that all women have access to quality mammography for the detection of breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages. Every Mammography facility is FDA inspected and regulated.

“They check everything our hands touch, from our credentials to our equipment,” said Robin Benson, Mammography Supervisor. “It takes everyone on our team to make this program work.”

Our FDA – American College of Radiology – accredited Mammography lab offers the most advanced screening and diagnostic capabilities available, with 3-D Mammography that uses multiple x-rays to recreate a three-dimensional image of the breast. Wayne UNC Health Care offers preventive, screening mammograms and diagnostic mammograms.

Please join us in thanking our highly experienced Mammography team – Robin Benson, Melissa Newsome and Shannon Hendricks – for their hard work in achieving this certification.
