It's important for women to know that the facility they choose to have their mammogram has well-qualified technologists and radiologists (physicians who interpret the mammograms) and practices high standards. Women in eastern Connecticut can be assured that quality services are provided through Eastern Connecticut Health Network's mammography departments at Rockville General Hospital, Manchester Memorial Hospital, and Glastonbury Wellness Center. Each facility recently passed its annual FDA (Food & Drug Administration) Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) inspection.
The FDA requires an annual inspection of all mammography programs in accordance with MQSA. The inspection assures that the facility is in compliance with federal regulations. In addition to staff qualifications, the inspection also covers the following areas: equipment, medical audit and outcome analysis, mammography reports and quality of images, and quality control/quality assurance protocols.
At ECHN you will find a staff of caring, certified professionals, highly skilled in all facets of mammography, whose main concern is your comfort and health. Please visit the Breast Health section of this website to learn more.
