In order to receive the ACR’s Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation, a center must be fully accredited in:
- Mammography by the ACR (or an FDA-approved state accrediting body)
- Stereotactic Breast Biopsy by the ACR
- Breast Ultrasound by the ACR (including the Ultrasound-Guided Breast Biopsy module)
The ACR is the leader in quality programs for breast imaging. As such, it is developing new initiatives to stay current with the science and technology that drive radiology practice as well as the clinical needs of the profession. In the future, centers may need to meet more rigorous requirements, such as performing expanded audits or achieving accreditation in Breast MRI, to maintain their designtion as Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence.
The ACR is a 34,000 member professional society which includes radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists, interventional radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians. All imaging facilities that provide mammography must be certified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under the Mammography Quality Standards Act and Program. To be certified, an imaging facility must be accredited. The FDA has designated the ACR as an accrediting body. Imaging centers/facilities aren’t required to seek ACR accreditation in other modalities (MRI, Ultrasound, etc.), but do so voluntarily.
