Manual of Quality Assurance Programme for Mammography [Adobe Acrobat PDF File (118 kb)]
This manual gives QAP procedures that are in addition to the general regulatory requirements. QAP in mammography is vital because mammography is technically one of the most demanding radiological investigations and consistently high quality mammograms are essential. Poor quality mammogram will lead to mistaken diagnosis and increased number of inappropriate biopsies.
