Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center has been designated a Breast Imaging Center ofACR award 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 receiving mammograms.”

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.
