Moores UCSD Cancer Center designated an ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence
Date:9/15/2010

Moores UCSD Cancer Center at the University of California, San Diego has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

"We are committed to providing care above the standard and this prestigious certificate recognizes our extraordinary effort," said Haydee Ojeda-Fournier, MD, assistant professor of clinical radiology at Moores UCSD Cancer Center. "ACR leads the way toward the latest developments in science and patient care. To be a member of this elite group of Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence is quite an honor."

By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in all of the College's voluntary breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.

UCSD breast imaging services are fully accredited in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. Peer-review evaluations, conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field, determined that Moores UCSD Cancer Center has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.

"Fewer than six percent of the imaging centers in California received this designation," said Anne Wallace, MD, professor of clinical surgery and director of the UCSD Breast Care Team. "Being recognized by ACR as a breast imaging center of excellence confirms what I experience every day as the surgeon leading the breast team at Moores UCSD Cancer Center. Our colleagues in breast imaging are not only kind, caring and efficient, but their amazing ability to catch and re-diagnose findings makes UCSD's breast imaging team world-class."
