Camden Campus Hospital MRI Services Receive Accreditation for High Practice Standards
ST. MARYS, Georgia: Jan. 25, 2012 – The Southeast Georgia Health System Camden Campus Radiology Department was recently awarded a three-year accreditation in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) following a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review of the practice. Board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field conduct the evaluations. They assess the qualifications of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment along with the quality of images taken.
“This accreditation was made possible by the hard work and dedication of our team members who strive to provide our patients with the best screening and diagnostic services available,” said Timothy P. Bryant, MBA, RT(R)(N), manager, Radiology and Cardio-Pulmonary Services, Camden Campus. “Having this accreditation provides our patients and referring physicians with a high level of confidence in our services and assures them we offer only the highest quality of care.” The MRI section joins the computed tomography, nuclear medicine and mammography sections as being ACR accredited.
The ACR is a national organization in partnership with the FDA providing accreditation that demonstrates commitment to quality patient care. The ACR provides accreditation programs for mammography, MRI, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, PET, CT and radiation oncology.
