ACR accreditation enhances your experience at UMI.
UMI has a long history of accreditation by the American College of Radiology (ACR), a distinction which is not just awarded, but earned. ACR-accredited imaging facilities operate far above accepted standards for accuracy, professionalism, patient safety, and quality assurance. To receive accreditation, our staff must undergo stringent education and training. Our technology is tested and re-tested by medical physicists to ensure the highest degree of accuracy. And our procedures are peer-reviewed to ensure the best standard of patient care. Accreditation is not a one-time designation but an ongoing process of improvement, where we are reviewed every two years. We are proud to have earned this distinction and work every day on improving our service to patients and referring physicians.
