Brockton, MA – Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as a result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital Radiology is now accredited by ACR in Ultrasound, Mammography, Stereotactic Breast Biopsy, and MRI.
The ACR, headquartered in Reston, VA, awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of 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 ACR’s Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.
