Evangelical Achieves Ultrasound Accreditation, Improving Patient Diagnostic Tools | Health
Lewisburg – The Imaging Services at Evangelical Community Hospital have been granted a three-year accreditation in ultrasound following a comprehensive review by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
Ultrasound imaging, also known as ultrasound, uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of internal parts of the body. At Evangelical, ultrasound imaging is used to help diagnose the causes of disease, injury, or other medical problems in the body and to examine the developing fetus during antenatal visits. Ultrasound is safe, non-invasive and does not require the use of ionizing radiation.
The ACR Gold Seal of Accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities that meet the ACR’s practice parameters and technical standards, following peer review by certified physicians and medical physicists and experts in the field.
Image quality, personnel qualifications, suitability of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs are assessed.
