CCK Radiology Earns Reaccreditation by IAC
In hospitals, outpatient centers and physicians’ offices, nuclear medicine procedures are used to diagnose and treat diseases in a broad range of medical specialties applying to every major organ system in the body, often at earlier stages than other available medical procedures. More than 20 million nuclear medicine imaging and therapeutic procedures are performed in the United States each year.
There are many facets that contribute to an accurate diagnosis based on nuclear medicine. The training and experience of the technologist performing the examination, the type of equipment used and the quality assessment metrics each facility is required to measure, all contribute to a positive patient outcome. IAC (Intersocietal Accreditation Commission) accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indicated of consistent quality care and a dedication to continuous improvement.
CCK’s Radiology department, located at our Main office in Wichita, KS, has been granted an additional three-year term of accreditation by the IAC in Nuclear Medicine. This latest accreditation awarded to CCK, Nuclear/PET demonstrated the facility’s ongoing commitment to providing quality patient care in nuclear medicine.
Accreditation by IAC indicates that CCK has undergone an intensive application and review process and is found to be in compliance with the published Standards. Comprised of a detailed self-evaluation followed by a thorough review by a panel of medical experts, the IAC accreditation process enables both the critical operational and technical components of the applying facility to be assessed, including representative case studies and their corresponding final reports.
