The diagnostic imaging center at Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center in Gilbert (on the Mesa border) recently was designated a Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
The recognition goes beyond accreditation to highlight best-quality imaging practices and diagnostic care. This includes a comprehensive assessment of the entire medical imaging enterprise, including structure and outcomes. The designation recognizes excellence at multiple levels — including the professional staff, the technology and the policies and procedures the organization follows — and superior patient care.
The American College of Radiology is one of the largest and most influential medical associations in the U.S., and devotes its resources to making imaging and radiation therapy safe, effective and accessible to those who need it. Its 36,000 members include radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists, interventional radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians.
