What is ACR accreditation?
The American College of Radiology (ACR) has accredited more than 38,000 facilities over the past three decades. ACR accreditation is the gold standard in medical imaging. It’s a voluntary review process that shows an imaging facility’s dedication to excellence.
ACR accredited imaging facilities must go through a thorough process to ensure that they meet the highest standards of quality and care. Facilities must meet standards for personnel qualifications, quality assurance, and equipment requirements before receiving accreditation.
The review process is overseen by experienced board-certified radiologists and medical physicists who are experts in their imaging modalities. Imaging facilities can earn accreditation in ten different imaging modalities:
- Breast MRI
- Breast Ultrasound
- Computed Tomography
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging
- Nuclear Medicine
- Positron Emission Tomography
- Radiation Oncology Practice
- Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
The American College of Radiology is the most widely recognized medical imaging and radiation oncology accrediting body. ACR accredited imaging facilities have met nationally-accepted standards for quality and safety. When you see the ACR gold seals you know that the facility provides the highest level of medical care.
