DALLAS, June 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The echocardiography lab at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas has earned reaccreditation by the Inter-societal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL), making it one of only two hospitals in the region accredited by the ICAEL.
