What does ACR accreditation mean?
What does the gold seal mean?
When you see the ACR gold seal, you can rest assured that your prescribed imaging test will be done at a facility that has met the highest level of imaging quality and radiation safety. Botsford Hospital and our personnel have gone through a comprehensive review to earn accreditation status by the American College of Radiology (ACR), the largest and oldest imaging accrediting body in the U.S. and a professional organization of 34,000 physicians.
What should I know about radiation safety?
Before your imaging procedure be sure to ask your physician the following questions:
Why should I have my imaging exam done at an accredited facility?
When you see the gold seals of accreditation prominently displayed in our imaging center, you can be sure that you are in a facility that meets standards for imaging quality and safety. Look for the ACR Gold Seals of accreditation.
To achieve the ACR Gold Standard of Accreditation, our personnel qualifications, equipment requirements, quality assurance, and quality control procedures have gone through a rigorous review process and have met specific qualifications. It's important for patients to know that every aspect of the ACR accreditation process is overseen by board-certified, expert radiologists and medical physicists in advanced diagnostic imaging.
