|Celebrating CT reaccreditation are Lead CT Technician
Rosanne McGraw and Director of Radiology Lisa Smith
Methodist Mansfield Medical Center has again been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in computed tomography (CT) as the result of a recent review from the American College of Radiology (ACR). CT scanning — sometimes called CAT scanning — is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and tailor treatments for various medical conditions.
“This accreditation represents our team’s ability to meet the highest standards of both image quality and patient safety.” says Lisa Smith, director of radiology at Methodist Mansfield. “ACR accreditation is another example of our commitment to providing our patients with high quality care.”
The ACR gold seal of accreditation 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.
Methodist Mansfield’s diagnostic imaging center provides a full array of services with convenient hours, including x-ray, PET/CT and CT scan, MRI, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and interventional radiology. Methodist Mansfield is also a women’s center, dedicated to the specialized health needs of women, including Saturday Spa mammography, breast MRI, bone density, ultrasound, and stereotactic biopsy.
