The American College of Radiology Notes Problems with Boston Diagnostic Imaging

The American College of Radiology (ACR) first noted deficiencies in the clinical cases that were submitted with the Boston Diagnostic Imaging facility’s accreditation renewal application. As a result, the ACR conducted a clinical image review of mammograms performed by the facility between May13, 2013 and May 13, 2015.

FDA Directs Boston Diagnostic Imaging To Cease Performing Mammographies

Following its review, the ACR revoked the facility’s application for mammography accreditation effective July 29, 2015. On August 13, 2015, the FDA suspended the facility’s Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) certificate and directed the facility to cease performing mammography.

FDA Recommendations

Boston Diagnostic Imaging was directed by the FDA to notify patients and their health care providers of the problem. The FDA advises that although this does not mean that the mammogram results are inaccurate, it does mean that patients should consider having their mammograms re-evaluated at a MQSA-certified facility to determine if a repeat mammogram or additional medical follow-up is needed.

The FDA recommends the following for patients who had a mammogram at Boston Diagnostic Imaging any time on or after May 13, 2013:

  • If you have had a more recent mammogram at a MQSA-certified facility since then, you should follow the recommendations from that facility.
  • If you have not had a mammogram at an MQSA-certified facility since then, follow these guidelines:
    • Talk with your health care provider as soon as possible about your medical follow-up. You may need your mammogram re-evaluated, and possibly need a repeat mammogram and/or possible further evaluation.
    • If your health care provider recommends a repeat mammogram, it should be done at an MQSA-certified facility to ensure quality and accuracy. A database of MQSA-certified facilities in your area is available online or by calling the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) information number at 1-800-422-6237.
    • If you need a repeat mammogram and your health insurance will not pay for it, you can call the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) information number at 1-800-422-6237. Experts at this number may be able to identify a facility near you that provides free or low-cost mammograms.

Patients and healthcare professionals can report Boston Diagnostic Imaging complications to FDA’s MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program online or by calling 1-800-332-1088.
