Date:5/14/2008

RALEIGH, N.C., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Cancer Centers of North Carolina's diagnostic imaging service has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

Radiation oncologists Dr. John F. Reilly and Dr. K. Kolby Sidhu lead the practice's radiation oncology program, which provides patients with state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic radiology services, including Computed Tomography (CT) and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT).

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. Nationally board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field conduct the evaluations. 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.

The ACR is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists and nuclear medicine and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical ima
