Baptist Huntingdon has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in mammography as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Parameters and Technical Standards after 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 ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides a comprehensive report that can be used for continuous practice improvement.
Baptist Huntingdon’s registered radiology technologists certified in mammography include Lori Laprade, Rosemary Swindle and Beth Hylton under the radiology direction of Brad Cary.
