GREENSBORO, NC – The FDA released a mammogram alert March 24, 2015, for patients of Richard D. Adelman, M.D. in Raleigh, N.C. The alert was issued for any patient who received mammography services at Adelman’s practice since August 24, 2012.
The FDA issued this warning in response to an American College of Radiology review that spanned from August 25, 2012 to August 25, 2014 and discovered shortcomings in the quality of mammograms patients were receiving.
The baseline standards set in place by the FDA were not met by Dr. Adelman’s family practice, which resulted in the loss of his accreditation on November 5, 2014. On November 18, 2014 the practice was instructed to notify patients who visited during this period that the quality of their mammograms were not in line with FDA standards. Dr. Adelman’s practice cannot provide mammography services until the accreditation is reinstated.
While all patients were alerted about possible problems with the quality of their mammograms, it should not be assumed that all mammograms were inaccurate.
If you or someone you know has had a mammogram at this facility since August 24, 2012, here are the recommendations from the FDA:
