Madison Avenue Radiology Center, located at 190th St. and Broadway, failed an annual inspection by not meeting American College of Radiology criteria for image quality, and some of the deficiencies were severe, the FDA said.
The FDA's recommendations to patients are to ask for their mammogram and medical reports from the radiology center and have them reviewed at a facility certified under the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) to decide if a repeat mammogram or more medical follow-up is needed.
On July 13, 2021, the FDA directed the facility's owner to notify all patients and their referring healthcare providers about the problems, but the facility has not performed the ordered notifications.
The FDA encouraged patients to call the National Cancer Institute's information telephone number at 1-800-422-6237 to find a MQSA-certified facility in their area.
