This designation is awarded to breast imaging centers that achieve excellence by seeking and earning accreditation in all of the ACR's voluntary breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.

Centers that are designated as an ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence have:

  • Voluntarily gone through a rigorous review process to be sure they meet nationally accepted standards
  • Employed personnel who are well qualified, through education and certification, to perform and interpret medical images and administer radiation therapy treatments
  • Acquired equipment that is appropriate for the testing or treatment of breast cancer
  • Met or exceeded quality assurance and safety guidelines
