Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)
The Medical Devices Agency (MDA) has been merged with the Medicines Control Agency (MCA) as of 1st April 2003, to form the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The primary task of the MHRA is to help safeguard public health by working with users, manufacturers and legislators to ensure that medical devices meet appropriate standards of safety, quality and performance and that they comply with relevant directives of the european union.
   
ImPACT: CT Scanner Evaluation
ImPACT stands for Imaging Performance Assessment of CT scanners. We are the UK's CT scanner evaluation centre, funded by the Medical Devices Agency. We provide a wide range of CT (Computed Tomography) scanner related services to the UK's National Health Service. On our site, we try to give you an idea of our work, as well as providing resources for people involved in CT scanning.
   
KCARE: Diagnostic Radiology
KCARE (King's Centre for the Assessment of Radiological Equipment) is an independent X-ray equipment evaluation centre which since 1979 has provided advice on the selection and purchasing of radiological equipment to the NHS. The centre is part of the independent evaluation programme supported by the Medical Devices Agency (MDA), an Executive Agency of the Department of Health.
   
GCAT: Gamma Cameras
The Gamma Camera Assessment Team, based at the Western Infirmary in Glasgow, has been evaluating Gamma Cameras since 1980. We are part of the independent evaluation programme supported by the Medical Devices Agency (MDA), an Executive Agency of the Department of Health.
   
MagNet: Magnetic Resonance Scanners
MagNET is the Magnetic Resonance National Evaluation Team, for MRI Evaluation, Quality Assurance and Specification in the UK.
   
UEEP: Ultrasound Scanners
UEEP (Ultrasound Equipment Evaluation Project) has been evaluating Ultrasound equipment since 1985. We are now part of the independent evaluation programme supported by the Medical Devices Agency (MDA), an executive agency of the Department of Health.
   
PACSnet National Evaluation Team
PACSnet was established in the summer of 2001 and is part of the independent evaluation programme supported by the Medical Devices Agency (MDA) , an Executive Agency of the Department of Health. The team is based in the Medical Physics Department of St George's Hospital in London. PACSnet provides independent technical evaluation of Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) and the components of such systems. Information provided by PACSnet is intended to assist purchasers of PACS with their purchasing decisions, implementation and efficient use of their PACS.
   
American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM)
The American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) Task Group 18 is a national task force consisting of medical imaging experts and organizational affiliates dealing with performance evaluation of electronic display devices. The purpose of the Task Group is to generate a document that provides guidelines to practicing medical physicists and engineers for in-field performance evaluation of electronic display devices intended for medical use. The Group intends to generate/recommend a set of publicly accessible "standard" test patterns (including multi-task comprehensive test patterns for QC procedures), and to gather a comprehensive bibliography on the subject.
