Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point Earns ACR Accreditation for Ultrasound
April 14, 2011
Hudson, FL — Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point has announced that it was awarded a three-year term of ACR (American College of Radiology) accreditation in ultrasound, including general, OB, and vascular. RMCBP’s Imaging Department is now a fully accredited facility, having been already accredited in MRI, CT, and Nuclear Medicine.
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 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.
