Eunice Q. Sorin Women'S Diagnostic Center Designated A Breast Imaging Center Of Excellence

02-12-2015
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.

The Eunice Q. Sorin Women’s Diagnostic Center can be reached at 410-641-9215.
