BEAUFORT MEMORIAL’S WOMEN’S IMAGING CENTER
NAMED BREAST IMAGING CENTER OF EXCELLENCE
Center meets radiology profession’s highest standards for quality and service
BEAUFORT, SC – The Beaufort Memorial Hospital Women’s Imaging Center (WIC) has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
Only facilities accredited by the ACR in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy) are awarded the designation.
Its award to the WIC means the center is meeting the highest standards of the radiology profession in its provision of these essential screening and diagnostic services.
“We are extraordinarily proud to receive the designation,” says Jackie Brown, managing clinical director of the WIC. “Our facility voluntarily underwent a rigorous review process to ensure that we’re providing our patients with a nationally recognized level of care.”
Peer-review evaluations—conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field—determined that the Women’s Imaging Center 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.
