Quality controls of medical devices emitting ionizing radiation on the French market

In Autumn 2019, the French Competent Authority (ANMS) published a Report on the inspection activities performed in 2018, specifically targeting medical devices that emit ionizing radiation while verifying their quality.

In 2018, there were 27,176 controls and 42,303 periodic checks and 11 quality control decisions were adopted by the ANMS directed at:

·         Dental radiology

·         Analog mammography

·         Digital mammography

·         Nuclear medicine

·         Bone densitometry

·         Radiodiagnosis

·         Interventional radiology

·         Radiotherapy

·         Scanography

With visual graphs, the Report presents both evolution of sectorial non-conformities through the period of 2014-2018, as well as the number of inspections.
