Breast Imaging Center of Excellence

The Breast Center at ImageCare of Latham at the Capital Region Health Park has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR), making it the first outpatient non-hospital imaging center in the Capital Region to achieve this designation. To achieve this status, The Breast Center at ImageCare met very rigorous requirements established by the ACR and earned voluntary ACR accreditation in the following breast imaging modalities: mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound, and ultrasound guided breast biopsy.

The accreditation process consisted of evaluations in each breast imaging technology by a team of board certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Their findings certify that The Breast Center at ImageCare has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.

As an official Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, The Breast Center at ImageCare in Latham can offer your patients a full spectrum of breast cancer screening and diagnostic services. We also continue to offer breast imaging services at our Saratoga location, including breast MRI imaging.

The quality of imaging and the expert abilities of our sub-specialized radiologists are important to ensuring you get the clearest and most accurate information possible to help detect breast cancer, so treatment can begin as soon as possible. This increases the chances of long-term survival for your patients.

The Breast Center at ImageCare has been ACR accredited in mammography since 1994 and in ultrasound since February 2010. Furthermore, The Breast Center at ImageCare is also accredited in MRI and performs MRI-guided breast biopsies.
