Raleigh Radiology is now a designated BREAST IMAGING CENTER OF EXCELLENCE by the American College of Radiology (ACR). By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy).
“Breast cancer stats show that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. We are so pleased to receive this recognition of excellence from the ACR. It demonstrates our level of commitment to our patients and community,” says Dr. Laura Thomas, board-certified breast interventional radiologist and head of breast imaging services for Raleigh Radiology.
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 this facility has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.
The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
