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
