Liberty Hospital receives Breast Imaging Center of Excellence accreditation from the American College of Radiology

Tuesday, October 11, 2022

The American College of Radiology (ACR) awarded Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) accreditation to the Breast Care Center at Liberty Hospital for meeting the highest standards in four processes that comprise comprehensive imaging care: mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and image guided biopsy, and breast MRI. This accreditation follows the opening of the hospital’s state-of-the-art Breast Care Center in 2021.

To be considered for BICOE accreditation, the Breast Care Center underwent a rigorous assessment of its facility, structure and outcomes by ACR. To achieve this high honor, strict quality and safety standards were met as well as the delivery of comprehensive breast care by a team comprised of radiologists, technologists and staff.

“ACR accreditation is considered the national gold standard for comprehensive breast imaging quality and expertise, and achieving this truly reflects our Breast Care Center’s commitment to excellence in the Kansas City region and beyond,” Raghu Adiga, MD, hospital president and CEO, said.

ACR is the leading accrediting body for all types of imaging, including mammography and breast imaging. Its quality programs for breast imaging serve 40,000 professionals and focus on medical imaging and radiation oncology in the delivery of comprehensive healthcare services.
