Lake Huron Medical Center 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).
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 health care services.
