Mammographic Accreditation Phantom
Company : Computerized Imaging Reference Systems Inc
UMDC Code : 105898
The Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) of 1992 requires that all mammography facilities in the United States be accredited by an approved body. The American College of Radiology is an MQSA approved accreditation body. To receive MQSA accreditation, each facility must submit an image of an ACR-approved phantom and, to maintain accreditation, the phantom must be imaged weekly and records of those images maintained. The ACR has approved the CIRS Model 015 for use in the ACR Mammography Accreditation Program.
The CIRS Model 015 Mammographic Accreditation Phantom was designed to test the performance of a mammographic system by a quantitative evaluation of the systems ability to image small structures similar to those found clinically. Objects within the phantom simulate calcifications, fibrous calcifications in ducts and tumor masses.
