Fully Accredited ACR Facility

The American College of Radiology (ACR) recently announced that Cooperative Magnetic Imaging (CMI), based in Utica, has attained Accreditation.  The mission of the ACR is to serve patients and society by maximizing the value of radiology, by advancing the science of radiology, improving the quality of patient care, providing continuing education for radiology professions and conducting research for the future of radiology. 

The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of its practice. Image quality and procedure evaluations are conducted by board-certified radiologists and medical physicists who are experts in the field. The program also evaluates personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality-control procedures and quality-assurance programs. All findings are reported via a comprehensive report that includes recommendations for improvement.

“The ACR accreditation process is a voluntary process but we believe it is very important to maintain the highest standards possible for all of our centers and we are proud that we continue to pass the rigorous review process of the committee.” says Steve Fossaceca, CMI’s Business Manager.
