Eunice Q. Sorin Women'S Diagnostic Center Designated A Breast Imaging Center Of Excellence
The Eunice Q. Sorin Women’s Diagnostic Center at Atlantic General
Hospital has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by
the American College of Radiology (ACR).
By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence,
the 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 breast imaging modality by
board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the
field, have determined that this facility has achieved high practice standards
in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality
control procedures, and quality assurance programs.
Only seven percent of centers nationwide have received the distinction
of Breast Imaging Center of Excellence.
The Eunice Q. Sorin Women’s Diagnostic Center focuses on providing
top-notch technology as well as warm, friendly patient care. In addition
to breast ultrasound and MRI and minimally invasive breast biopsies, the
center offers digital mammography to afford area residents the best breast
imaging services possible.
The center also provides the MammoPad® as a standard of care for all
patients receiving a mammogram. An FDA-cleared disposable foam cushion,
MammoPad creates a warmer, softer and more comfortable mammogram experience.
Mammography technologists report that the MammoPad cushion makes it easier
to help patients relax and position the breast, allowing them to acquire
more tissue and even compression for the image.
