The Hilo Women’s Imagery Center in Hilo has suspended its mammography program until an inspection by the American College of Radiology is completed between 27 October and 28 October 2016.
Dr. James Lambeth, the president of Hawaii Radiologic Associates, tells reporter Jeff Hansel that both the ACR and the Food and Drug Administration have asked HRA to “submit additional plans for corrective action and called for an on-site survey before the program can reinstated.”
The site visit will include a radiologist, a medical physician, and mammography technologist fro the American College of Radiology.
Ashley Kierkiewicz, a spokesperson for the Women’s Imaging Center, said “HRA’s Kona facility is fully certified, accredited and remains unaffected.”
