The Jersey Shore Hospital Radiology Department earned its Certificate of Accreditation in computed tomography (CT) from the American College of Radiology (ACR). CT scanning — sometimes called “cat scanning” — is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and tailor treatments for various medical conditions.
This honor is awarded to select physicians and facilities who, through formal examination, meet the requisite eligibility and professional qualifications to interpret and perform CT scans.
The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 34,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
“The use of computed tomography continues to be an emerging technology in the assessment of health in patients,” said Edward Sowul Jr., Administrative Director of Radiology. “We are very proud of this ACR accreditation. This accreditation along with the state-of-the-art General Electric VCT 64-slice imaging system is yet another way we ensure the community that we strive to give our patients advanced and personalized healthcare.”
