MANSFIELD, Texas — Methodist Mansfield’s ultrasound department has been awarded accreditation by the American College of Radiology (ACR) in the areas of obstetric, gynecological, general, and vascular ultrasound services. This includes peripheral vascular, cerebrovascular, and deep abdominal vascular services.
Celebrating the Methodist Mansfield ultrasound department's ACR accreditation are Lisa Smith, director of radiology; La Tosha Carter, ultrasound tech; and Ingrid Arevalo, ultrasound team lead
“This accreditation marks a tremendous achievement by our team of highly skilled registered ultrasound technologists who provide expert, compassionate care each and every day,” says director of Radiology Lisa Smith. “This distinction elevates Methodist Mansfield to an exceptional level of credibility and professionalism in delivering excellent clinical images and quality patient care.”
The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of the practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. The surveyors evaluate the qualifications of personnel, equipment, performance, effectiveness of quality-control measures, and quality of clinical images.
