Methodist Imaging Services Earns Multiple Accreditations

Published: April 22, 2015

OMAHA  –  Peer-review evaluations, facility equipment reviews and rigorous assessments by those in the radiology industry have resulted in recent accreditations for the Methodist Imaging Department at Methodist Hospital, Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital and Methodist Physicians Clinic.

The recent accreditations were as follows:

  • Methodist Jennie Edmundson Breast Center was reaccredited for stereotactic breast biopsy, which is the use of mammography to help pinpoint the spot in the breast that needs to be removed. The accreditation is based on peer review, constructive feedback on staff qualifications, equipment, quality control, quality assurance, accuracy of needle placement, image quality and dose.


  • Methodist Physicians Clinic Medical Office Building at 192 & Dodge has been reaccredited by the American College of Radiology for its ongoing high practice standards. The honor was achieved following evaluations by board-certified radiologists and medical physicists who are experts in the field.
  • Methodist Hospital CT was granted the designation of an American College of Radiology Lung Cancer Screening Center. The voluntary designation recognizes facilities that have committed to practice safe, effective diagnostic care for individuals at the highest risk for lung cancer. In order to receive this elite distinction, facilities must be accredited by the ACR in computed tomography in the chest module, as well as undergo a rigorous assessment of its lung cancer screening protocol and infrastructure.

“Our team has worked extremely hard to obtain these accreditations by the ACR,” said Jennifer Brase, service executive for digital imaging services. “There is much work that goes in to the process and to be recognized is a tremendous achievement. We want to be the leader in radiology in the Omaha community and these designations are a result of our staff’s hard work and dedication in the field of imaging.”
