CentraState Medical Center has recently been designated a Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence (DICOE) by The American College of Radiology (ACR).

The DICOE program, which represents the pinnacle of medical imaging care, is an achievement that goes beyond accreditation to recognize best-quality imaging practices and diagnostic care. This includes a comprehensive assessment of the entire medical imaging enterprise, including structure and outcomes.

The DICOE designation recognizes excellence at multiple levels — including the professional staff, the technology, and the policies and procedures the organization follows — and superior patient care.

In order to receive this elite distinction, facilities must be accredited by the ACR in all modalities they provide, and in which the ACR offers an accreditation program. Another requirement is to participate in the Dose Index Registry® and General Radiology Improvement Database, as well as Image Wisely® and Image Gently®.

“We are proud to have earned this designation once again,” says Mandi Wortman, director of radiology services. “We take great pride in our commitment of offering leading-edge technology, combined with the expertise of our caring physicians, nurses and technologists, to ensure consistent, high-quality care to our patients.”

CentraState’s radiology department offers state-of-the-art, advanced diagnostic and therapeutic radiological tools and techniques. Routine and highly specialized technology is available for a variety of uses including UltrasoundCT scansPET / CT scans, MRIs, and Nuclear Medicine techniques that diagnose and treat a wide range of medical conditions.

CentraState’s board-certified radiologists specialize in a variety of subspecialties, including neuroradiology, vascular radiology, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, breast and bone imaging.
