Methodist Charlton Women’s Imaging Designated an ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence
Methodist Charlton Women's Imaging is one of only five breast imaging centers in Dallas designated as a Center of Excellence.
DALLAS – Women's Imaging at Methodist Charlton Medical Center was recently designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR), one of only five such Centers in the city of Dallas. By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in all of the College's voluntary, breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program. The breast imaging services at Methodist Charlton are fully accredited in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound, and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. Peer-review evaluations, conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field, have determined that Methodist Charlton has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.
The ACR, headquartered in Reston, Va., is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs for focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology, as well as the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
