July 12, 2019

Conemaugh East Hills has been designated as 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 this facility has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.

“This is a milestone achievement for our imaging team,” said Cliff Dull, Director of Imaging Services at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center, including Conemaugh East Hills. “We are working to provide a one-stop women’s center for the patients in our area, and imaging is part of that equation. We provide all imaging that a physician may request for women’s health.”

Women’s imaging services at Conemaugh East Hills include 3D and digital mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound, MRI, CT, and DEXA scan for osteoporosis. A physician order is needed for imaging services. To schedule an appointment for imaging services, call (800) 999-9675.

The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 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.
