Pullman Regional Hospital Designated an ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence
Mar 23, 2017
Imaging Services at Pullman Regional Hospital has been designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) accreditation by the American College of Radiology. BICOE is the gold standard of quality in breast imaging centers. BICOE designation is awarded to breast imaging centers that achieve excellence by seeking and earning accreditation in all of the ACR’s voluntary breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules. These are Mammography, Stereotactic Breast Biopsy, and Breast Ultrasound (including 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 Pullman Regional Hospital has achieved high practice standards in image quality, staff qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.
“The Breast Imaging Center of Excellence indicates the highest level of quality in breast imaging to our patients,” said Darin Porter, director of Imaging Services. “Women can now look for the BICOE seal at Pullman Regional Hospital and be assured they will receive breast imaging that has been reviewed and assessed by top professionals in the field of radiology with a seal of excellence.”
