Stereotactic Breast Biopsy Medical Physicists

R 333.5675 Medical physicists.
Rule 675. A stereotactic breast biopsy medical physicist shall meet all of the following requirements:

(a) Initial qualifications. Before independently performing surveys of stereotactic breast biopsy facilities a medical physicist shall have complied with all of the following:
(i) Meet the requirements of R 333.5634.
(ii) Have performed 1 hands-on stereotactic breast biopsy physics survey under a qualified stereotactic breast biopsy medical physicist or 3 independent stereotactic breast biopsy surveys before the April 17, 2013.
(b) Continuing experience. Following the second anniversary date of the end of the calendar quarter in which the initial qualifications of subdivision (a) of this rule were completed, the stereotactic breast biopsy medical physicist shall have performed at least 2 stereotactic breast biopsy physics surveys during the 24 months immediately preceding the date of the facility's annual inspection or the last day of the calendar quarter preceding the inspection or any date in between the 2. The facility shall choose 1 of these dates to determine the 24-month period.

(c) Continuing education. Following the third anniversary date of the end of the calendar quarter in which the initial qualifications of subdivision (a) of this rule were completed, the stereotactic breast biopsy medical physicist shall have completed at least 3 continuing medical education credits in stereotactic breast biopsy during the 36 months immediately preceding the date of the facility's annual inspection or the last day of the calendar quarter preceding the inspection or any date in between the 2. The facility shall choose 1 of these dates to determine the 36-month period.

Discussion
Stereotactic breast biopsy (SBB) medical physicists must meet the requirements for an MQSA medical physicist and have performed 1 SBB survey under supervision or 3 surveys independently to be initially qualified.

SBB medical physicists must document the continuing experience of at least 2 SBB surveys in the prior 24 months. Medical physicists must obtain at least 3 continuing medical education credits in SBB every 36 months.
