FDA questions mammogram quality at Raleigh clinic

— A lawsuit was filed on New Year's Eve against Raleigh Radiology LLC just a couple of weeks after services there were suspended after a review of their technical quality.

The lawsuit was filed by David D. Larson Jr. of Paynter Law on behalf of Emily Cram and all the plaintiffs seeking action in the class action lawsuit. The lawsuit seeks a jury trial to determine damages for patients who had mammograms performed at Raleigh Radiology -- Blue Ridge, located at 3200 Blue Ridge Road in Raleigh, from Nov. 7, 2017 and Nov. 6, 2019.

A review of the business led to the suspension on Dec. 17. The review was conducted by the American College of Radiology and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Patients who received mammograms between No. 7, 2017 and Nov. 6, 2019 were scheduled to receive letters from the business and the FDA.

The lawsuit contends, in part, that the business didn't do what it was stated to do and that the Blue Ridge Road office is not accredited the American College of Radiology. The lawsuit also states "The ACR found substandard and deficient mammogram images during its review and denied accreditation to the Blue Ridge Road office."
