Expand
The Southeast Georgia Health System MRI& Imaging, located in the Summit Plaza in Brunswick,has been awarded a three-year term of re-accreditation in ultrasound as the result of an extensive review by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
 
This accreditation is for obstetrical, gynecological, general and vascular ultrasound, including abdominal vascular, cerebrovascular, deep abdominal vascular and peripheral vascular. 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.

“The ACRgold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of patient safety standards and image quality,” says Karen S. Beaver, CRA, MBA, director of Radiology, Brunswick Campus. “This designation assures our patients that they are receiving quality imaging care by highly skilled medical imaging professionals.”
The designation is awarded only to facilities meeting ACRPractice Guidelines and Technical Standards, following a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACRCommittee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
 
The ACRis a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
