Under the interim regulations, physicians could not count interventional mammographic examinations toward the initial or continuing experience requirements. Will this same policy be extended to medical physicists under the final regulations?

Yes. Because interventional mammography is currently excluded from MQSA regulations, surveys of interventional mammographic facilities or units cannot count toward the initial or continuing experience requirements. 21 C.F.R. 900.2(aa)(1).
