HANCOCK — Portage Health announces its radiology department's recent accreditation by the American College of Radiology. This three-year accreditation in computed tomography (CT) services for adult and pediatric patients is the result of a recent ACR survey. Portage Health is already accredited in mammography services.

Headquartered in Reston, Va., the ACR awards accreditation to facilities of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of the practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. These experts assessed the qualifications of Portage Health's personnel and the adequacy of the hospital's equipment. Findings from this survey are provided to ACR's Committee on Accreditation.

"We are proud to receive this recognition for our CT services," said Portage Health Radiology Director John Jokela. "Our team is dedicated to providing the best imaging services possible to the citizens of the western Upper Peninsula."

The ACR is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists and nuclear medicine and medical physicists.
