Pearlie Harris Center for Breast Health Designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence
The Pearlie Harris Center for Breast Health 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 the Pearlie Harris Center has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.
“We are extremely proud to receive this designation,” offers Rose Leo, Vice President of Women’s Services / Administrator, St. Francis Eastside. “This is a clear message to our community of our commitment to ensuring the highest standards in breast imaging quality and safety – for every patient, every time. ”
