Ultrasound Services Awarded Accreditation

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Aug. 3, 2010–The Ultrasound Imaging Services of Southeast Georgia Health System MRI & Imaging, located at 1111 Glynco Parkway, Suite 15, were recently awarded a three-year term of accreditation as the result of a 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. 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 along with the quality of images taken. The surveyors report their findings to the ACR's Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.

The Center was acquired by the Health System in 2008 and in addition to gynecological and general ultrasound services, offers MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), CT (CAT scan), and general X-ray services in a convenient location just off I-95 exit 38 at Glynco Parkway in Brunswick.
