Mercy Breast Care Center Awarded ACR Mammography Reaccredidation
Mercy Breast Care Center at Dakota Dunes has been awarded a three-year term of reaccredidation in mammography 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 Guidelines 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 the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 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.
The Mercy Breast Care Center at Dakota Dunes has been providing mammography and related women’s imaging since 1989 and is the only triple-accredited breast care treatment facility in the Siouxland area.
