GAMC Designated an ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence

Awards & Recognition

GAMC’s Radiology department is pleased to announce that we have once again been re-certified as 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 all of the College’s voluntary, breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program. GAMC has been certified since 2010.

The breast imaging services at GAMC are fully accredited in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. 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 GAMC has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.

“We’re proud to once again be certified as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence,” said Clayton Lau, director of Radiology at GAMC. “It recognizes the commitment GAMC has made to ensuring that our patients receive the best possible imaging services for rapid diagnosis and treatment of breast conditions.”
