The French Healthcare Products Safety Agency (AFSSAPS) has published a Decision aimed at ensuring tighter quality control of all imaging equipment used in mammography and in the interpretation of mammograms. All technicians in this area have six months to install full quality control of the devices used in this area. The decision is part of the government's new breast screening programme, which aims to ensure that all 50-69 year old women in France receive mammography screening every other year.
