DEP Fourth Quarter Mammography Inspections Released.

Records Show All 111 Inspected Pennsylvania Facilities Meeting Federal Standards

HARRISBURG, Pa., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary Kathleen A. McGinty today released reports for 111 mammography facilities inspected by DEP during the final quarter of 2006, showing all facilities operating within guidelines set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

DEP inspects each of Pennsylvania's approximately 400 certified mammography facilities annually under a contract with FDA, which sets standards for these facilities under the federal Mammography Quality Standards Act.

The inspections are part of an ongoing effort to ensure a high-degree of proficiency in the maintenance and operation of sophisticated equipment used to conduct these tests. DEP has released these quarterly reports since April 2004.

A performance audit released by the state Auditor General's Office in late 2003 confirmed that DEP is doing an exemplary job on inspections.

DEP is making information on the inspections available by partnering with the Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition.

Information on locating regional mammography facilities, and on when the latest inspection for that facility was conducted, is available online at http://www.depweb.state.pa.us/, Keyword: "Mammography", then click on Mammography Facilities in PA.
