The ACR, headquartered in Reston, VA, awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of the practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess the qualifications of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment. The surveyors report their findings to the ACR's Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.
"This ACR accreditation is the Seal of Approval for vascular diagnosis for our patients with vein disease", said Dr. Kevin Dickey, Director, Vein Centers of Connecticut. "We are recognized as innovators in the diagnosis of vein disease, which can be very complicated and needs to be carefully assessed to achieve effective treatment."
