ACR Breast Center of Excellence
  • St. John's is a designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence

    By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the American College of Radiology (ACR) recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in all of the College’s voluntary, breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.

    The breast imaging services at St. John's are fully accredited in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. Peer-review evaluations, conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field, have determined that this facility has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.
