MONTOUR FALLS – Schuyler Hospital has recently been re-accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for mammography. The 3-year re-accreditation recognizes the Hospital’s mammography services for achieving high practice standards following a rigorous peer-review evaluation. Assessments included staff qualifications, equipment, quality control, quality assurance, image quality and radiation dose. The Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) requires all U.S. mammography facilities to be accredited.
In addition to mammography, Schuyler Hospital offers diagnostic imaging services including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), bone density scans, CT scans, fluoroscopy studies, ultrasound, and x-ray.
The ACR, headquartered in Reston, Va., awards accreditation following evaluations conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess the qualifications of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment. The surveyors report their findings to the ACR’s Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.
The ACR is a national organization serving more than 38,000 diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, and nuclear medicine and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
