NARH Mammograpy Service Earns Gold Seal

Print Story | Email Story

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — North Adams Regional Hospital’s mammography service has once again earned the Gold Seal of Accreditation from the American College of Radiology.

"This accreditation reaffirms our commitment to providing the highest level of image quality and patient safety," said Dr. Jeffrey Bath, chief of radiology at NARH.

NARH's Medical Imaging Department includes three qualified interpreting radiologists, including Drs. Bath, Henry Gold and Brian McElaney, and seven mammography technologists. The hospital uses two Hologic digital mammography units to produce high-quality images with maximum patient comfort.

Screening mammography appointments are available by calling the NARH Medical Imaging Department at 413-664-5405.

The state Department of Public Health Radiation Control Program renewed the mammography department's facility license in September.

The ACR gold seal of accreditation is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.

NARH is also accredited in ultrasound including breast ultrasound to assist in the diagnosis of breast-related diseases; OB-GYN ultrasound; and general ultrasound. Information: 413-664-5280 or www.nbhealth.org
