Hospital Receives Accreditation

Congratulations to , which has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in computed tomography as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology.

CT scanning —sometimes called CAT scanning—is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and tailor treatments for various medical conditions.

The ACR gold-seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field.

Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs are assessed.

“We are honored to be awarded with this three-year accreditation,” Terry Wiltrout, chief executive officer of Canonsburg General Hospital said. “We are continually focused on offering patients the highest level of care and diagnostic testing.”

The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 34,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
