OLBH Mammography Services Complete ACR Validity Check
The American College of Radiology (ACR) has completed a successful validity check of the mammograms performed at the OLBH Women’s Center.
OLBH currently is accredited by the ACR. As part of accreditation, the ACR is required to conduct random clinical image reviews of a sample of facilities to monitor and assess their compliance with established standards. This year, OLBH was selected for a random review of its images with the purpose of determining if the level of image quality is maintained during the three year accreditation cycle. The process is known as the ACR Validation Film Check.
As part of the ACR Validation Film Check, the ACR chose a specific date from which films had to be submitted. The films had to include one clinical case performed on each mammography modality and one phantom image for each mammography modality. Other data was also required to be submitted. OLBH received a positive report from the ACR for its recent check and remains in good standing with the ACR’s mammography accreditation program.
