Geneva General Hospital’s Women’s Health Department Earns ACR Accreditation in Breast Ultrasound
Women’s Health at Geneva General Hospital has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in Breast Ultrasound and Ultrasound Guided Breast Biopsy as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). 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 take great pride in this accomplishment. This type of clinical excellence is a tribute to the dedication and commitment of the Women’s Health department staff. They pride themselves on providing patients with the best clinical and personal experience possible” said Jeff Fultz, director of diagnostics.

The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.

The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 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 health care services.
