UPDATE ON MAMMOGRAPHY SERVICES AT RALEIGH RADIOLOGY BLUE RIDGE
Raleigh Radiology Resumes Mammography Services at Blue Ridge
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that our Blue Ridge facility meets the requirements for certification under the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA). MQSA certification means that a mammography facility is capable of providing quality mammography. Raleigh Radiology has and will continue to work closely with both the FDA and American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR has accepted our Blue Ridge facility’s application for accreditation and we are confident that the testing phase of accreditation will be successfully completed soon.
We are extremely sorry for any distress or inconvenience this matter has caused our Blue Ridge patients. For patients who had a mammogram 12 months ago or more at our Blue Ridge office, those patients can schedule their annual mammogram at any of Raleigh Radiology’s facilities and request to speak with a radiologist to discuss their annual mammogram. For patients who had a mammogram at the Blue Ridge location less than 12 months ago, those patients can request a review of that mammogram to determine if a no cost, repeat mammogram is needed. Patients who want to request a review should call (919) 532-2387. For more information about this matter, we encourage patients to read the following Message from Raleigh Radiology to Its Patients or call our patient hotline at (919) 532-2387.
We are proud of our team of breast imaging physicians and technologists, as well as the state-of-the-art technology we provide to our patients. Every day, these caregivers are driven to provide our patients with exceptional imaging services and compassionate care. We thank you for allowing us to serve you and meet your imaging needs.
