Imaging Services Awarded The ACR Gold Seal
In this day and age it seems as if everything is “going digital”. Digital breast cancer screenings provide a tremendous health benefit because they can detect cancer at the earliest and most treatable stages. In fact, the five-year survival rate is 97% when breast cancer is caught early. Most important, digital mammography can improve accuracy in annual mammography screenings.
The Imaging Department at Sarah D. Culbertson Memorial Hospital has been recognized again by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for their outstanding performance and were awarded a three-year term of accreditation in mammography. 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.
Digital Mammography is a powerful new tool for early detection of breast cancer. However, it's only natural to feel anxious when it's time to have a mammogram. At Culbertson Memorial Hospital, we understand the emotions that go along with getting a mammogram, waiting for results and, if needed, determining treatment. “The technology and expertise at Culbertson sets us apart from most screening centers,” says Director of Imaging Services, Christy Sims, R.T. (R). “Our highly skilled team of specialists provides the most comprehensive and compassionate care in the area, which helps us give our patients confidence and comfort.”
