Other Services and Resources
The American College of Radiology's Commission on Quality and Safety and the Commission on Breast Imaging has designated St. Luke's Hospital's Department of Radiology a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. This designation is awarded only if a center has achieved accreditation by the ACR in stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy, and by the ACR or an FDA-approved state accrediting body in mammography.
St. Luke's also has been accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. The standards include proficiency in the areas of center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education and quality improvement. A breast center that achieves NAPBC accreditation has demonstrated a firm commitment to offer its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease.
