The Sullivan Breast Center at Sibley Memorial Hospital passed their annual Food & Drug Administration (FDA) inspection in full compliance of accreditation standards on June 3, 2013.
Conducted once a year, the FDA
inspection involves the examination of all equipment, personnel, and policies and procedures. Meeting the FDA
regulation standards ensures that a facility provides safe and effective health care across all areas. The report states that all items were in compliance and the Center has met the annual Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) Inspection requirements.
In addition, the Center
received three year re-accreditation for each of their mammography machines, including 3D.

Committee on Mammography.
