Taylor Hospital Granted Ultrasound Accreditation by American College of Radiology
Taylor Hospital was recently granted ultrasound accreditation by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for a period of three years, beginning in August 2012.
“We are very excited to be receiving this accreditation once again,” says Krishnamurti Ramprasad, M.D., chairman of the Department of Diagnostic Imaging at Taylor Hospital. “Having this accreditation proves that we are providing the best possible care to our patients.
Because of their success in a recent survey by the Committee on Ultrasound Accreditation of the Commission on Quality and Safety, Taylor Hospital received accreditation for OB (1st trimester only), gynecological, general and vascular ultrasound services.
“This accreditation confirms that our ultrasound services have undergone comprehensive review, and meet the nationally recognized standards established through the ACR,” Ramprasad adds. “The staff provides exceptional care to our patients, and can ensure that the quality of our clinical images is in accordance with these national requirements.”
The ACR’s Ultrasound Accreditation Program involves the acquisition of clinical images, submission of relevant physician reports corresponding to clinical images submitted, and quality control documentation.
The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 34,000 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 healthcare services.
