During October 1, 1999-September 30, 2002, NIOSH collaborated with the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) to accept films from MSHA's new Miners' Choice Program (MCP) for classification by using CWXSP procedures.
During October 1, 1995--September 30, 2002, CWXSP and MCP received 35,983 readable chest films for 31,179 miners at 1,439 mines in 23 states.
Both CWXSP and MCP address data quality and control biases by specifying standardized radiographic technique, by using only approved facilities and radiographic equipment, and by employing a standardized approach for assigning final determinations of radiograph classifications based on independent readings of each radiograph by multiple certified readers.
