Premier Imaging Earns Ultrasound and Mammography ACR Accreditations
Premier Imaging has received two accreditations by the American College of Radiology (ACR), one in Ultrasound and the other in Mammography.
“We are excited to receive ACR accreditation in Ultrasound and Mammography for the first time at Premier Imaging, especially since we only started serving patients this past June, said Sherry Nance, Director of Premier Imaging. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I am proud of the hard work and long hours the staff put into these accreditations. They were troopers. This couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have been done without their commitment. These achievements are just another example of our dedication to serving our customers with well educated and certified personnel, high equipment standards, as well as our Center meeting and exceeding quality assurance and safety guidelines.Ã¢â‚¬Â
After an extensive review by the ACR, the accreditations that Premier Imaging received were a three-year accreditation in ultrasound and mammography. Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of internal body parts to help providers diagnose illness, injury or other medical problems. Premier Imaging is accredited in General, Gynecological, Vascular Peripheral, Vascular Cerebro, Vascular Abdominal and Vascular Deep Abdominal ultrasound imaging.
Mammography is a specific type of imaging test that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women. Premier Imaging utilizes a digital mammography system which is one of the most advanced available today.
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. Premier Imaging is located at 4515 Premier Drive, Suite 101, High Point.
