Accreditations


We Image Gently™
At NWH Radiology we are committed to administering the lowest radiation doses possible, while still producing the highest quality images.
Our practices and techniques are regularly monitored by Radiologists and Medical Physicists, in conjunction with the American College of Radiology’s Image Gently™ guidelines.

American College of Radiology
NWH has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed.


The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.

Breast Imaging Center of Excellence
The Women’s Imaging Center at Northern Westchester Hospital has been acclaimed a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).  NWH is the first hospital in Westchester with this Center of Excellence designation.
