The Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) requires mammography facilities across the nation to meet uniform quality standards. Congress passed this law in 1992 to assure high-quality mammography for early breast cancer detection, which can lead to early treatment, a range of treatment options, and increased chances of survival. The MQSA was enacted in response to serious concerns about the quality of mammography. This diagnostic technique is a crucial tool in combating the mortality associated with the growing incidence of breast cancer. The FDA enforces the MQSA through compliance inspections.
The answer to this question can be found on the FDA MQSA Policy Guidance Help System. Visit this link.
