When choosing an outpatient imaging center, there are numerous factors to take into consideration like price and location. The most important factor to consider is if the center is ACR Accredited. This golden stamp of approval guarantees you'll receive high-quality MRI services.
So, what does this mean?
The ACR awards facilities their accreditation for achieving high practice standards after having their practice peer-reviewed. The evaluations are conducted by board-certified radiologists and physicists who are experts in their field.
There are numerous modalities that a center can be accredited in:
- Breast Ultrasound

- Stereotactic breast biopsy
- Radiation Oncology
Why choose an ACR Accredited facility?
When you go to a center that carries one or more of the accreditations listed above, you can be sure that they have gone through a rigorous testing process in order to meet the highest national standards, the personnel are well qualified, and the equipment is appropriate for the tests and treatments you’ll be receiving.
