Diagnostic Radiology Associates is an American College of Radiology (ACR) accredited facility certified in ultrasound, mammography, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
What is the American College of Radiology?
The American College of Radiology (ACR) is the oldest and most experienced imaging accreditation body in the nation. 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 the facility equipment. The surveyors report their findings to the ACR’s Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.
The ACR is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic-interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, and nuclear medicine and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
Why should I care if my radiology office is accredited by ACR?
ACR accreditation demonstrates commitment to quality patient care.
ACR accreditation certifies that the staff and equipment have passed the ACR’s rigorous evaluation.
ACR accreditation programs provide a high level of confidence to your referring physician that only the highest quality of care is being provided by accredited facilities.
