The Christiana Care Breast Center is the only facility in Delaware to earn this prestigious award. MRI of the breast offers valuable information about many breast conditions that other imaging modalities, such as mammography or ultrasound, might not obtain.

The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. Facilities achieve the award if they meet ACR practice guidelines and technical standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and expert medical physicists. The evaluation assesses image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.

The Christiana Care Breast Center is the only facility in the region devoted exclusively to breast care, diagnosis and treatment. It offers the region's only dedicated breast MRI unit.

The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 34,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians and medical physicists.
