JENNIE STUART OUTPATIENT MEDICAL IMAGING CENTER
RECEIVES AMERICAN COLLEGE OF RADIOLOGY ACCREDITATION
The new Jennie Stuart outpatient Medical Imaging Center, located on the Eagle Way Campus, has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation as a result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
The accreditation is for mammography, US-OB (gynecological, general and vascular US services including peripheral/vascular, cerebrovascular, abdominal vascular and deep abdominal vascular), and MRI.
The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of the practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess the qualifications of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment. They surveyors report their finding to the ACR’s Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report. The ACR accreditation gives patients the assurance that staff and equipment have passed the ACR’s rigorous evaluation and that only the highest quality care is being provided.
