Emory Healthcare Breast Imaging Center Earns Center of Excellence Designation
The Emory Breast Imaging Center has earned the "Breast Imaging Center of Excellence" award from the American College of Radiology's (ACR) Commission on Quality and Safety and the Commission on Breast Imaging. It is the highest designation available through the ACR.

The Center of Excellence designation recognizes the highest level of achievement in breast imaging by successfully earning accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. The Emory Breast Imaging Center participates in the review process to ensure it meets nationally accepted standards established by the ACR.

"This designation recognizes Emory's Breast Imaging Center and its dedication to improving women's health by participating in these rigorous quality assurance programs," says Barry Pressman, MD, president of the ACR.

"We are very proud of this designation," says Carl D'Orsi, MD, director of the Center. "Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing the best, most efficient and most caring service. We constantly participate in educational and certification programs to ensure that we are always improving our ability to interpret medical images and administer radiation therapy treatments."
