What Does ACR Accreditation Mean in Your Care? Take a closer look.

RAO is proud to announce our renewed accreditation by the American College of Radiology, or ACR, in some of the most important diagnostic screening modalities, signifying our ongoing commitment to providing unsurpassed health imaging services.
The ACR provides evidence-based guidelines and quality assessments for specific imaging and treatment protocols to foster superior patient care. RAO’s ACR accreditation demonstrates our dedication to outstanding practice quality, accuracy and safety, and denotes that our medical team, procedures and technologies have undergone intensive review and focused analysis by expert Board Certified physicians and medical physicists, and reached the ACR’s rigorous benchmarks for staff qualifications, safety, equipment and image quality, and quality control and assurance.
RAO and its team of Board Certified radiologists are proud to have garnered recurring ACR accreditation in the following modalities and services:
Nuclear Medicine – Our ACR accreditation signifies excellence in the acquisition of diagnostic images and corresponding data for nuclear medicine imaging, including bone scan, DaTscan scan, gallium scan, gastric emptying scan, gallbladder scan, liver/spleen scan, parathyroid scan and thyroid scan.
MRI – RAO is ACR accredited for quality and safety in MRI services, including breast MRI and MRI enterography. We offer both open and high field MRI.
PET – The ACR has accredited our practice for excellence in clinical imaging and protocols and physician qualifications for Positron Emission Tomography, a nuclear medicine used to examine metabolic processes.
CT (Computed Tomography) and PET/CT – Our ACR accreditation applies to all CT services, including CT angiography, CT enterography and PET/CT, which combines CT with Positron Emission Tomography to deliver two diagnostic imaging scans in one service. RAO uses only helical CT equipment for enhanced image quality and greater detection capabilities with less radiation exposure.
Breast Health Services – We have ACR accreditation in all qualifying diagnostic breast health services, including mammography, breast MRI, breast ultrasound and stereotactic breast biopsy, earning our Women’s Health Center and TimberRidge Imaging Center the ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation.
