ROCHESTER, N.H., May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Frisbie Memorial Hospital recently earned American College of Radiology (ACR) Accreditation renewal in CT scanning for adult and pediatric patients. Currently, the following modalities in radiology have been granted ACR Accreditation: CT, Ultrasound, MRI, and Nuclear Medicine.
The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. Board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field award ACR Accreditation only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 34,000 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.
