FDA Penalizes Mammography Center

ROCKVILLE, Md--A Chicago mammography facility, known as CMI, has agreed to pay a $30,000 fine and to cease operating in the mammography field for 5 years. The FDA had accused it of performing mammography exams without accreditation, a violation of the Mammography Quality Standards Act of 1992. Both CMI and its president, Thomas E. Miller, will remove themselves from the mammography field and jointly pay $25,000. The facility’s supervisory radiologist will pay $5,000. The case is the first time a mammography facility has been required to pay a civil money penalty under the Act.
