On December 10th the Radiology Department went through a Mammography Quality Assurance Audit (MQAA) with the FDA. Through the audit, no deficiencies were found. Some of the things that are checked with this audit are: Quality Assurance (QA) on the mammography unit, technologist’s for continuing education, radiologist’s continuing education, and many other QA processes. The entire personal that performs these exams are registered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists in mammography. These technologists have more than 60 years of experience in performing mammograms. Besides performing these procedures, they have to continue be proficient at all other parts of the department. Deb Norris heads up the Mammography program and there have not been many deficiencies in this area thanks to her leadership as well as her staff, Laurie Meyer, Angie Kulzer and Steph Hemmesch, who seek high quality standards in radiology. Great job to all of you!
