Las Vegas, NV Sep. 17, 2014 — Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Imaging (SDMI) has been designated a Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence™ (DICOE) by the American College of Radiology (ACR) at multiple locations.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.“Not only is this a tremendous honor for our organization, it is a testament to the dedication of our entire SDMI Family to the quality of care and service we deliver,” says Managing Partner Dr. David Steinberg. “Our patients tell us they choose SDMI for the excellent patient experience. To have the ACR recognize us as a Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence, the industry’s highest honor, is icing on the cake!”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®. Both Image Wisely® and Image Gently® are campaigns with the objective of lowering the amount of radiation used in medically necessary imaging studies and eliminating unnecessary procedures.
