At AU Health Imaging, we know that getting accurate results on screening and diagnostic exams is of paramount importance. Treatment decisions depend on the quality of the images produced and the skill and experience of the interpreting radiologist.
Images and Results
The technologists at AU Health Imaging have completed specialized education in radiology and have advanced level certification in their area of expertise. Each is licensed and holds registries certifying their qualifications to perform the exams. This level of expertise ensures not only quality, but safety as well.
The quality of the images produced at our centers is submitted to and validated by our accrediting body, The American College of Radiology. AU Health Imaging is proud to have achieved ACR accreditation in mammography. As a newly opened center, we will be pursuing ACR accreditation in other services and hope to obtain those in early 2021.
Our center is also annual pledge participants of Image Wisely, a joint initiative of the American College of Radiology, Radiological Society of North America, American Society of Radiological Technologists and American Association of Physicists in Medicine.
In addition, our center also participates in Image Gently. The Image Gently Alliance is a coalition of health care organizations dedicated to providing safe, high quality pediatric imaging worldwide. The primary objective of the Alliance is to raise awareness in the imaging community of the need to adjust radiation dose when imaging children.
