Mammography Compliance (MQSA)

The State of Wisconsin, under contract from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), performs annual inspections at each of the state's approximately 250 facilities which perform mammographic x-ray procedures. These inspections, performed by personnel in the Department of Health Serviceís (DHS) Radiation Protection Section, are conducted on a schedule prescribed by the FDA. This schedule calls for a facility to be inspected once every twelve months, with a two-month grace period either way.

These inspections are to insure that mammography facilities are in compliance with the Mammography Quality Standards Reauthorization Act of 2004 (exit DHS) (the first Act was 1992). In order for a Wisconsin mammography facility to operate, it must be accredited by the American College of Radiology, and then become a certified facility of the United States Food and Drug Administration, Center for Devices and Radiological Health, Division of Mammography Quality Radiation Program.

A list of certified facilities for Wisconsin can be found at the following website: (exit DHS)
