Sylvester Radiology/Breast Imaging Department Named a Center of Excellence

11.09.2008

The Radiology/Breast Imaging Department at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine has good reason to be proud. It was recently designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The designation was awarded for both stereotactic and breast ultrasound.

“This is a great accomplishment and I’m very proud of our team,” said Margaret Roelans, B.A., R.T.(M), R.D.M.S., Breast Imaging Supervisor, Radiology/Breast Imaging Department.

The Center of Excellence designation is awarded to breast imaging centers that achieve excellence by seeking and earning accreditation in all of the ACR’s voluntary breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.

As part of the accreditation process, the ACR evaluates the qualifications of personnel, equipment performance, quality control measures, accuracy and clarity of clinical images. Only one other hospital in the region has been awarded this designation of excellence.
