To achieve the American College of Radiology (ACR) Gold Standard of Accreditation, Maryland Open MRI’s personnel qualifications, equipment requirements, quality assurance, and quality control procedures have gone through a rigorous review process and have met specific qualifications. It's important for patients to know that every aspect of the ACR accreditation process is overseen by board-certified, expert radiologists and medical physicists qualified in advanced diagnostic imaging.
When you see the gold seals of accreditation prominently displayed in our imaging facility, you can be sure that you are in a facility that meets standards for imaging quality and safety and that:
• Our facility has voluntarily gone through a vigorous review process to ensure that we meet nationally-accepted standards of care.
• Our personnel are well qualified, through education and certification, to perform medical imaging and interpret your images.
• Our equipment is appropriate for the test you will receive, and our facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines.
