To determine trends in mammography in the United States.
A sample of mammographic facilities was selected for each year of the Nationwide Evaluation of X-ray Trends.
The same protocol was followed for the 1985, 1988, and 1992 surveys.
Data were collected with use of the same imaging phantom for all three surveys and also with a different phantom in the 1988 and 1992 surveys.
Of the 356 facilities surveyed in 1992, 59% claimed to be in compliance with the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) mammography requirements, 42% were accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR), and 23% did not hold credentials from either the HCFA or the ACR.
