The Ann L. Baroco Center for Breast Health, located at Sacred Heart Women's Hospital in Pensacola, has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in all of the College's voluntary, breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.
Accredited services at Ann Baroco include:
• Stereotactic breast biopsy
• Breast ultrasound
• Ultrasound-guided breast biopsy
• Breast MRI
To receive this designation, the Ann Baroco Center participated in peer-review evaluations conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Each modality is evaluated on image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.
The ACR, headquartered in Reston, Va., is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs for focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology, as well as the delivery of comprehensive healthcare services.
