The computed tomography (CT) program at Copley Hospital has been accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR). CT scanning is one of many diagnostic imaging services provided by Copley. CT’s are noninvasive and help physicians diagnose and tailor treatments for various medical conditions.
ACR accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. The hospital had to demonstrate ACR Practice Parameters and Technical Standards during 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 were assessed.
“With ACR accreditation, patients can trust they are receiving the best possible quality imaging from experts using the best technology in a safe environment,” says Lise Hamel, Director of Diagnostic Imaging at Copley Hospital. “It is a rigorous process to be accredited and we are very proud of our team of radiologic technologists for achieving this honor.”
