Berlin, Vt – Central Vermont Medical Center’s Diagnostic Imaging Division of MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) recently achieved accreditation from the American College of Radiology. The MRI service is now ACR Accredited as a Quality Indicator for this service line for a period of three years.
“This accreditation is a standard of excellence that speaks to both the credentials of the staff operating the highly sophisticated MRI unit, and interpretation of the complex images by our Board Certified Radiologists,” said Nancy Lothian, CVMC’s Chief Operating Officer.
Accreditation is granted if a facility has met all of the testing criteria established by the ACR Committee on MRI. “It signifies that your facility provides this essential service to your community at the highest standards of the radiology profession,” noted Anthony J. Scuderi, M.D., Chairman of the Committee on MRI Accreditation in a letter to Central Vermont Medical Center.
CVMC’s wide-bore MRI is specifically designed to allow larger patients and patients who suffer from claustrophobia to feel more comfortable during their procedures.
