Memorial earns national CT accreditation

Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in 64-Slice CT Scan as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

Memorial is the first Niagara County hospital to receive CT accreditation from the ACR, said Les MacKenzie, Memorial’s director of diagnostic imaging.

The ACR, headquartered in Reston, Va., awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of its practice. Evaluations are conducted by board certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance program.  The surveyors report their finding to the ACR’s Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.

The ACR is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians and medical physicists with programs for focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.  To learn more, visit www.acr.org.
