PET/CT of Las Colinas is an ACR Accredited Facility
At PET/CT of Las Colinas, providing our patients and their physicians with access to the highest quality testing procedures is something we take very seriously. While our state-of-the-art technology ensures our imaging remains on the cutting edge, our dedication to excellence goes far beyond the machines we employ in our practice. That’s why we are proud to hold and maintain American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation for the types of testing procedures we offer our patients.
ACR accreditation is the gold standard for imaging facilities across the nation. ACR has operated a rigorous program meant to measure the performance and quality of care of testing facilities since 1987. All told, more than 35,000 facilities across the country, specializing in 10 different imaging modalities, hold this highly coveted accreditation.
In order to receive ACR accreditation, imaging facilities must pass a stringent inspection into the quality of care delivered and the expertise of staff members in the fields of nuclear medicine, imaging and radiology. The organization looks at such factors as quality and accuracy of images and corresponding data, staff experience, continuing education commitment and other measurements to make its accreditation determinations. This highly coveted credentialing is required by all providers that bill for nuclear medicine and PET scanning under Medicare Part B. It’s also a must-have for facilities that want to ensure their technology, procedures and expertise levels remain on or above par with standard practices in the field today.
PET/CT of Las Colinas is dedicated to providing patients with the highest-level of care available. Accurate, reliable imaging is the foundation on which successful treatment plans are formulated. It is also the lynchpin in helping physicians ensure clean bills of health are truly clean before they are delivered. By maintaining ACR accreditation, PET/CT of Las Colinas demonstrates dedication to delivering nothing less than excellence in everything we do.
