LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Baptist Health Breast Center on the campus of Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy).
“This is exciting news from this prestigious group that validates the excellent care that our Baptist Health Breast Center provides the patients of Arkansas,” said Greg Crain, vice-president and administrator of Baptist Health Medical Center Little Rock. “We are especially honored to be the only breast center in central Arkansas and one of two in the state with this distinction.”
Peer-review evaluations, conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field, have determined that this facility has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.
The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive healthcare services.
