The American College of Radiology (ACR), the largest and oldest imaging accrediting body in the U.S. and a professional organization of 34,000 physicians, has awarded Outpatient Radiology gold seals of accreditation in three advanced imaging modalities.

When you see the ACR gold seal, you can rest assured that your prescribed imaging test will meet the highest level of imaging quality and radiation safety. To achieve the ACR Gold Standard of Accreditation, our facility’s personnel qualifications, equipment requirements, quality assurance, and quality control procedures have gone through a rigorous review process and have met specific qualifications. It’s important for patients to know that every aspect of the ACR accreditation process is overseen by board-certified, expert radiologists and medical physicists in advanced diagnostic imaging.

Below is a description of our three services that have received accreditation.

Mammography

Mammography

Mammography is a specific type of imaging test that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.

Computed Tomography

Computed Tomography

CT scanning — sometimes called CAT scanning — is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and tailor treatments for various medical conditions.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging, also known as sonography, uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of internal body parts to help providers diagnose illness, injury, or other medical problems.

In addition to ACR’s gold seals, Outpatient Radiology has become one of The American College of Radiology’s (ACR) Lung Cancer Screening Centers. The designation recognizes Outpatient Radiology as a facility committed to providing quality screening care to patients at the highest risk for lung cancer. Lung cancer screening with the use of low-dose computed tomography (CT), along with appropriate follow-up care, significantly reduces lung cancer deaths and is cost effective compared to other major cancer screening programs.
