Henry County Medical Center’s Diagnostic Center has earned accreditation in two areas.

The center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in mammography as a result of a recent review by the American Collage of Radiology (ACR).

The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety.

It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Parameters and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field.

“HCMC is dedicated to providing the highest quality imaging services to our community,” Imaging Director Joe Gwaltney said.

He added that the Diagnostic Center is now offering 3D Mammography for screening and diagnostic mammograms for those who meet criteria.

The center also has been awarded another three-year term of accreditation in computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as a result of another review by ACR.

CT scanning, sometimes called CAT scanning, is a non-invasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and tailor treatments for various medical conditions.

MRI is a non-invasive medical test that uses magnetic fields to produce anatomical images of internal body parts to help physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions.

The Henry County Medical Center Diagnostic Center is a 10,000-square-foot facility which strives to integrate state-of-the-art technology with convenience, comfort and communication to ensure patients have the best experience possible.
