ACR logoCompass Cancer Center has been awarded the American College of Radiology’s gold seal of accreditation in computed tomography (CT scanning), signifying the highest level of image quality and patient safety.

The gold seal of accreditation is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR practice guidelines and technical standards.

This means our facility has voluntarily gone through a vigorous review process to ensure that we meet nationally accepted standards of care. The ACR gold seal signifies that our personnel are well qualified, through education and certification, to perform medical imaging, interpret your images, and administer your radiation therapy treatments. It is also your assurance that our equipment is appropriate for the test or treatment you will receive and that our facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines.

When you see the ACR gold seal, you can rest assured that your prescribed imaging test will be done at a facility that has met the highest level of imaging quality and radiation safety. The facility and its personnel have gone through a comprehensive review to earn accreditation status by the American College of Radiology (ACR), the largest and oldest imaging accrediting body in the U.S. and a professional organization of 34,000 physicians.
