ICAMRL-Logo Accreditation by the IAC (Intersocietal Accreditation Commission) means that Radiology Regional Center has undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts. The IAC grants accreditation only to those facilities that are found to be providing quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process including detailed case study review. IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations considered relevant by medical experts in the field of MRI. IAC accreditation is widely respected within the medical community, as illustrated by the support of the national medical societies related to MRI, which include physicians, technologists and physicists. MRI accreditation is required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and in some cases by private insurers. However, patients should remain vigilant in making sure that their MRI procedures are performed within accredited facilities, because for some facilities it remains a voluntary process.
ACR ACR (American College of Radiology) accreditation is an efficient process of both self-assessment and independent external expert audit, based on ACR guidelines and technical standards.  Their standards assess the qualifications of personnel, policies and procedures, equipment specifications, QA activities, patient safety, and, ultimately, the quality of patient care.   Radiology Regional Center was granted accreditation by the American College of Radiology (ACR) at each of its nine locations.
ICAEL Accreditation from ICAEL (The Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories).  Radiology Regional Center is the first imaging service in the area to have achieved this milestone, and the only imaging group to have earned accreditation in every specified area.   

Echocardiography is a complex imaging technique that relies on the experience and training of both the physician and sonographer.  Their interpretive and technical abilities determine the accuracy of an echocardiograph examination.  Radiology Regional Center committed to this voluntary credentialing process to show their commitment to high quality patient care and its provision of quality diagnostic testing.  Accreditation status signifies that their facility has been reviewed by an independent agency, which recognizes the laboratory’s commitment to quality testing for the diagnosis of heart disease.

ICANL

 

ICANL (Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Laboratories) has determined that Radiology Regional Center is one of the first nuclear and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) laboratories in the area to be so recognized for its commitment to high quality patient care and its provision of quality diagnostic testing.  It provides a peer review mechanism to encourage and recognize the provision of quality nuclear cardiology and nuclear medicine diagnostic evaluations by a process of voluntary accreditation.  A non-profit organization, the ICANL is dedicated to ensuring quality patient care and to promoting health care.

Radiology Regional Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in breast ultrasound as the result of a recent review (2012) by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It 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.

Radiology Regional Center is accredited in Mammography by the American College of Radiology. The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It 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.

CT-ACR-Accreditation

 

CT scanning is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and tailor treatments for various medical conditions. The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It 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. 

Radiology Regional Center is Accredited in Abdomen, Head/Neck, and Chest CT. Radiology Regional Center is also the ONLY imaging facility in Lee County accredited in Cardiac CT.

CT-ACR-Accreditation

The American College of Radiology designates Radiology Regional Center as a top quality provider of safe, effective diagnostic imaging for individuals at high risk for lung cancer. In addition to all of the requirements of the ACR CT accreditation program and accreditation in the chest module, a designated Lung Cancer Screening CT Center must meet the additional requirements including specific personnel qualifications, follow-up system, specific equipment quidelines, quality control procedures, and proper lung screening protocol.
