Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology Named a Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence
Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology Designated as ACR
Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence
We are proud and honored to announce that on May 12, 2016, Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology locations across Long Island were designated Diagnostic Imaging Centers of Excellence™ (DICOE) by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
The DICOE program represents the pinnacle of medical imaging care and is an achievement that goes beyond accreditation to recognize the highest-quality imaging practices and diagnostic care. To attain this distinction a comprehensive assessment of the entire medical imaging enterprise, including structure and outcomes, must be performed. The DICOE designation recognizes excellence at multiple levels — including the professional staff, the technology and the policies and procedures the organization follows — and superior patient care. All of which are qualities that Zwanger-Pesiri has been focused on since the practice’s establishment in 1958.
In order to receive this elite distinction, facilities must be accredited by the ACR in all modalities they provide, and in which the ACR offers an accreditation program. Another requirement is to participate in the Dose Index Registry® and General Radiology Improvement Database, as well as Image Wisely® and Image Gently®.
The ACR, founded in 1924, is one of the largest and most influential medical associations in the United States. The ACR devotes its resources to making imaging and radiation therapy safe, effective and accessible to those who need it. Its 36,000 members include radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists, interventional radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians.
