Hospital receives MRI accreditation

RUTLAND Rutland Regional Medical Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in Magnetic Resonance Imaging as a result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology. The ACR, headquartered in Reston, Va., awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of the high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of the practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess the qualifications of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment. The surveyors report their findings to the ACRs Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report. The ACR is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, and nuclear medicine and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
