The Women’s Imaging Center at Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital recently received the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation from the American College of Radiology (ACR). This accreditation recognizes the hospital’s voluntary participation in a rigorous review process to ensure that it has met and exceeded nationally accepted patient care standards for women’s imaging services. Cy-Fair is one of only seven Breast Imaging Center of Excellence facilities in Houston.

Breast imaging services at Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital are fully accredited in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound, and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. Peer-review evaluations, conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field, have determined that this facility has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.

“This designation reflects our ongoing commitment to excellence in breast health and it is an honor to receive this recognition with Breast Cancer Awareness Month just on the horizon,” says Beth Blythe, RT (R)(M), manager of the Cypress Fairbanks Women’s Imaging Center. “This accreditation means that our patients have access to safe, accurate, and effective care, and that they can rely on our caring staff to deliver the most accurate results possible using modern equipment.”

The ACR is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs for focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology, as well as the delivery of comprehensive health care services.

Cypress Fairbanks Women’s Imaging Center offers a wide range of services designed specifically for women, all delivered in a caring and sensitive environment. The dedicated team of radiologists, technologists, and support staff educate women about breast health and provide highly specialized breast imaging services. “We are proud to deliver a higher standard of care for our patients and to do our part in helping detect breast cancer earlier when treatments are most effective,” adds Blythe.
