I get calls every week from people at imaging facilities saying in panicked voices, “My physicist is here and he is looking for some form that I am supposed to have; some kind of FDA Form?” Does this sound familiar to you?
I 'm sure the mere presence of the initials “FDA” is the main reason there is a trace of panic in the person's voice, but the situation isn't as dire as it may seem. Don’t get me wrong, the FDA 2579 form is a very important form and definitely has to be filled out and kept on record. It is, however, very easy to obtain.
Let me answer the 2579 questions I get most often so that you can have the documentation you need, when you need it.
