Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center 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 mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, and breast ultrasound (including
ultrasound-guided breast biopsy).
“We are proud to receive this recognition that demonstrates our leadership
in breast health,” said Dr. Paul Reisch, Medical Director of PVHMC's
Breast Health Center. “We are committed to providing our patients
with the highest quality of care and treatment. That’s why we were
the first hospital in the region to offer 3D mammography to all patients
Peer-review evaluations, conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified
physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field, have determined
that this facility has achieved high practice standards in image quality,
personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures
and quality assurance programs.
The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000
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.
