Doctors Hospital of Manteca Earns ACR Re-AccreditationJun 21, 2022
Manteca, Calif. – Doctors Hospital of Manteca has been awarded a three-year term of re-accreditation in computed tomography (CT) as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). CT scanning — sometimes called CAT scanning — is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and tailor treatments for various medical conditions.
Doctors Hospital of Manteca has voluntarily gone through a vigorous review process to ensure the facility meets nationally-accepted standards of care.
“Offering the latest diagnostic imaging technology by highly-qualified technologists has always been a priority for Doctors Hospital of Manteca,” said Paul Bhangu, Director of Imaging Services. “We are proud to receive this accreditation which attests to that dedication. Patients can rest assured that their prescribed imaging tests will be done at a facility that has met the highest level of imaging quality and radiation safety.”
Doctors Hospital of Manteca offers advanced technology that looks inside the body to aid in the diagnosis of disease or injury. With a board-certified radiologist and imaging technologists, Doctors Hospital of Manteca provides a full range of diagnostic testing to help area providers provide the best care possible.
The ACR gold seal of accreditation is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Parameters 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 that can be used for continuous practice improvement.
The ACR, founded in 1924, is a professional medical society dedicated to serving patients and society by empowering radiology professionals to advance the practice, science and professions of radiological care. The College serves more than 37,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
