ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., May 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Affinity Healthcare LLC’s diagnostic imaging practice located at 1051 W. Rand Road, Arlington Heights, IL was recently awarded accreditation for Computed Tomography (CT), as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Affinity Imaging has also been awarded accreditation by the ACR for Nuclear Medicine and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
The ACR, headquartered in Reston, VA, awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high standards after a peer-review evaluation of the imaging practice. Board-certified physicians and medical physicists, experts in the field of diagnostic imaging, assess the qualification of the personnel and adequacy of facility equipment. The surveyors report their finding to the ACR’s Committee on Accreditation, which bases its decision on accreditation on the comprehensive report.
In May 2008, The Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiograph Laboratories (ICAEL) recognized Affinity Imaging as an accredited site for ultrasound. ICAEL exists to ensure the quality of ultrasound facilities, their equipment, personnel and protocols.
According to Michael Hartke, CEO, Affinity Healthcare LLC, “Increasingly, these types of quality designations are becoming requirements for insurers both as a mark of quality and as a condition for reimbursement. We are very proud of these distinctions from the ACR and ICAEL. The entire staff of Affinity Imaging has worked very hard to achieve these accreditations.”
