Essentia Health Designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence

Essentia Health-Fargo is proud to announce our designation as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

With this designation, ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy). Peer-review evaluations, conducted in each area by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field, have determined that Essentia Health has achieved high practice standards in imaging quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.

Dena Larson, diagnostic imaging manager explains, “The Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation exemplifies our commitment to high quality care for our patients. This designation is awarded to breast imaging centers that achieve excellence by seeking and earning accreditations in all of the ACR’s voluntary breast imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.”
