Edward designated ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence.
Edward Hospital has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
Edward is one of only 18 hospitals or imaging facilities in Chicagoland to have earned the designation, which means Edward has met the requirements of the ACR's mandatory mammography accreditation program and all of the ACR's voluntary breast imaging accreditation programs, including stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy.
"This is the most prestigious honor that can be awarded in breast imaging," says Darius Gilvydis, MD, a radiologist with Edward Hospital and Naperville Radiologists who specializes in mammography and breast MRI. "It speaks of our commitment to high quality breast imaging and technical competency with breast biopsies."
The ACR, based 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 that focus on medical imaging and radiation oncology.
