Indiana University Health Saxony Hospital has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in Breast Ultrasound and Ultrasound-Guided Biopsy as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology. Ultrasound imaging is a noninvasive medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of internal body parts to help physicians diagnose and better treat medical conditions. Ultrasound imaging of the breast produces a picture of the internal structures of the breast.
“We are proud to receive the ACR Gold Standard of Accreditation. This accreditation by the American College of Radiology provides our patients the assurance that they receive the highest level of image quality with the highest level of safety standards,” Nancy Davison, manager of Imaging Services stated.
Achieving this accreditation is very timely with the start of a new Breast Care program that opened in August. With the addition of Patricia Rae Kennedy, MD, FACS, and Linda K. Han, MD, FACS, two breast surgical oncology specialists, to the existing Women’s Imaging services at IU Health Saxony Hospital, women now have convenient access to expert breast care and the assurance of a high quality service.
