JPMC Earns MRI Accreditation
Jane Phillips Medical Center’s Diagnostic Center recently earned MRI Accreditation from the American College of Radiology. Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a noninvasive medical test that utilizes magnetic fields to produce anatomical images of internal body parts to help physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. The ACR stated the MRI technology met all of the testing criteria.
“This Gold Seal Accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety,” said Michael A. Reburn, M.D., radiologist. “It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR practice guidelines 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 during a three-week period. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
The accreditation is in effect for three years.
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.
The JPMC Diagnostic Center is located at 2661 SE Washington Boulevard at Highway 75 and the entrance to Colonial Estates. For more information about imaging services, contact us at 918/331-3020.
