Mammography Facilities - Inspections

DHEC inspects all mammography providers in South Carolina to make sure facilities meet the requirements of the federal Mammography Quality Standards Act as well as state regulations. We have a contract with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to perform inspections and enforce federal standards.

We also help ensure that low-income women receive quality mammograms under a program funded by DHEC's Center for Health Promotion.
