Breast Imaging Center of Excellence

Breast Imaging Center of Excellence

In 2011, the American College of Radiology’s Commission on Quality and Safety, and Commission on Breast Imaging designated Salem Health's women’s imaging department as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. To achieve this recognition, Salem Hospital earned accreditation in the Mammography Accreditation Program from the ACR and the following modalities: mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and biopsy and breast MRI.  

Each accreditation remains valid for three years at which time hospitals apply for renewal. The BICOE certificate remains as long as a facility is fully accredited in all four modalities. Salem Hospital has remained fully accredited since 2011.
