Breast MRI program accredited by the ACR
In order to receive accreditation, a facility must demonstrate that the physician and technical staff possess the qualifications and credentials specific to the performance of Breast MRI, that quality control and physics testing is performed regularly on equipment, and policies and procedures are in place outlining MRI safety and quality. Additionally, the ACR rigorously reviews and scores actual clinical cases as part of its accreditation process. Dr. Bethany Richman, Clinical Director of Breast Imaging and MRI Supervisor Stacey Pacini led the accreditation process.
"We are happy to add Breast MRI to list of accredited modalities by the ACR. We are currently working on accrediting the Ultrasound program, then our department will be accredited in every modality in which it's offered," says McIntosh.
