The Detroit Medical Center (DMC) Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital 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).
“All October, community members and organizations have been spreading pink and working to raise awareness around breast health, and breast cancer awareness and prevention, which is right at the heart of our mission as well,” said Kimberly Hart, M.D., Chief of Radiation Oncology at DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital. “We’re proud to have received this designation for our services, especially at such an appropriate time of year when women are being encouraged to take an active role in their breast health.”
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.
