Announcing the area’s first facilities to earn the prestigious ACR Breast Imaging Center’s of Excellence Designation.
The ACR (American College of Radiology) awards accreditation to facilities 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. The surveyors report their findings to the ACR’s Committee on Accreditation which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.
The Breast Imaging Center of Excellence is given only to centers whose quality earns ACR accreditation in Mammography, Stereotactic Breast Biopsy and Breast Ultrasound. Both our Twin Lakes and St. Augustine Imaging facilities were awarded this esteemed accreditation. For more information about the ACR and its guidelines, visit www.acr.org or call us at 386-274-5454.
