Parker Adventist Hospital has received American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditations for both Breast Ultrasound and Breast MRI. ACR accreditation is recognized as the gold standard in medical imaging. Both of these certificates affirm our commitment to providing the highest level of image quality and patient safety.
Achieving our accreditation in breast ultrasound and breast MRI demonstrates:
- Medical Imaging at Parker Adventist Hospital has voluntarily gone through a rigorous review process to be sure it meets nationally accepted standards.
- The personnel are well qualified, through education and certification, to perform and interpret your medical images and administer your radiation therapy treatments.
- The equipment is appropriate for the test of treatment you will receive.
- The facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines.
Important facts about us, so you'll know you're making the right choice:
- Having results read twice, by a radiologist and a computer-aided program, increases the accuracy. The Trio Breast Center at Parker offers both experienced board-certified breast radiologists and a computer-aided second read program.
- Mammography at The Trio Breast Center at Parker is certified by the American College of Radiology and the FDA and meets all requirements for certification. All services are provided by ARRT board-certified mammographers.
- We'll get you the results quickly and simply. After your mammogram has been analyzed by our board-certified radiologist, a follow-up report will be sent to your referring physician. You will also be notified by mail of the results for screening mammograms.
Tips to help you get in and out quickly, and have the best results:
- If you have not been here before, be prepared to provide copies of your most recent mammogram so the radiologist can compare for any changes. The Trio Breast Center at Parker staff can assist you in requesting previous mammograms.
- The day of your mammogram do not wear perfume, powder or lotion under your arms or on your breasts. These can interfere with the interpretation of the exam.
- Notify your mammographer at the time of the exam if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Also notify your mammographer if you have breast implants.
- If possible, try to schedule your appointment near the end or just after your menstrual cycle
