Mammography

RadiologyAdministrationCertificationCommissionCRA small

Mammography is a specific type of imaging test that uses a low-dose x-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women. To detect breast cancer as early as possible , the American Cancer Society Guidelines recommends annual mammograms for women over the age of 40.

 

Doctors Medical Center's mammography services have been certified by the American College of Radiology (ACR) to provide quality mammography services. The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. 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.
