Templeton Imaging of Twin Cities Hospital Earns the Spotlight for MRIs
American College of Radiology Awards Three-Year Accreditation
Templeton Imaging recognizes MRI Technologist Mike DiDonna as being primarily responsible for this honor.
"Mike is probably the best MRI tech in the county,” says James P. Cartland, M.D., a radiologist at Templeton Imaging. “He has been with Templeton Imaging for 19 years."
The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 34,000 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.
