Wayne Memorial Mammography Re- Accredited
The ACR’s gold seal is the industry standard for excellence in image quality and patient safety. The accreditation was awarded after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assessed image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer this accreditation and display this seal for our patients,” said Robert Brzuchalski, CRA, RT, RDMS, manager Imaging Services. “It’s an unbiased acknowledgement of the outstanding care offered by our mammographers and mammography department.”
Mammography is a specific type of imaging test that uses a low-dose X-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women. Wayne Memorial performs close to 5,000 mammograms each year.
