Imaging Healthcare Specialists Awarded ACR Accreditation in Mammography

IHS has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in mammography as a result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology. The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer review evaluation of the practice by board-certified physicians and physicists who are experts in the field. IHS currently offers digital mammography at four locations and will be expanding this service to additional locations in the coming weeks.

64 Slice CT Available at Imaging Healthcare Specialists’ Heart Imaging Center Facility in La Jolla

Imaging Healthcare Specialists has installed San Diego’s first outpatient 64 slice CT scanner at the Heart Imaging Center in La Jolla’s UTC area. The 64 slice CT is faster and produces higher resolution images, making it ideal for routine studies but particularly well suited for coronary artery calcium scoring (CACS) and coronary CT angiography (CCTA) studies to help diagnose heart disease. Through the utilization of non-invasive diagnostic imaging with the 64 slice CT, patients are able to avoid longer, more costly invasive procedures.
