American College of Radiology Renews Accreditation for Silver Spring's MRI Unit
Posted on: 09/09/2011
Progressive Radiology is pleased to announce the renewed accreditation of their MRI scanner by the American College of Radiology at Silver Spring.
The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of its practice. Image quality and procedure evaluations are conducted by board-certified radiologists and medical physicists who are experts in the field.
The program also evaluates personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.
When you choose an ACR-accredited facility, you know that:
• The imaging center has voluntarily gone through a rigorous review process to be sure it meets nationally-accepted standards.
• The personnel are well qualified, through education and certification, to perform and interpret your medical images and administer your radiation therapy treatments.
• The equipment is appropriate for the test or treatment you will receive, and the facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines.
Our goal is to provide safe, high-quality care for our patients, while offering unsurpassed customer service, superior image quality and rapid diagnostic interpretations.
