A medical physicist performing surveys of stereotactic breast biopsy units in any setting must meet the following minimum criteria:
Both of these:
Qualified to perform mammography surveys under MQSA
Performed 1 hands-on stereotactic breast biopsy physics survey under a qualified medical physicist or at least 3 independent surveys prior to 6/1/97
Upon renewal, 2 stereotactic breast biopsy unit surveys in the prior 24 months (physicists who have not maintained their continuing experience may requalify by performing 1 hands-on stereotactic breast biopsy physics survey under a qualified medical physicist)
Upon renewal, 3 CEUs in stereotactic breast biopsy in the prior 36 months
