Regarding CAP checklist, question ANP.23041.  "The operation of the imaging system is performed by high-complexity testing personnel."


We have a question regarding the qualifications of the operators.  The operators of the Aperio system are simply scanning entire slides to make a record for us prior to returning slides to the client.  Our operators make no evaluation of the image other than whether the scan is adequate for recording purposes, and this is verified by our medical staff prior to release of the materials.  In your opinion, does this constitute high-complexity testing and require CLIA compliant qualifications for the operators?
