Breast Imaging Center of Excellence accreditation

Accreditation

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). This designation means patient safety because there are less repeat breast examinations, earlier diagnoses, and a reduction in false positives.

Augusta University's Breast Imaging Center of Excellence means quality and safety in medical imaging for you and your family. One more way that we bring patient family centered care to the forefront.

NAPBC accreditation

Accreditation

NAPBC Accredited

Augusta University has been granted a three-year/Full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons.

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.
