Methodist Hospital in Morganfield, KY, has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation (2019-2022) in mammography as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
Mammography uses a low-dose x-ray system to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women. Judy Warmack, RT, Radiology Director, said, “I am very proud of our staff for continuously providing high standards of care that have allowed us to maintain ACR accreditation since 1993. Congratulations on this achievement.” 
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 Parameters 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. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report that can be used for continuous practice improvement.
