It’s known as the gold seal of imaging ….and a five-month effort has resulted in Tomah Health awarded a three-year accreditation of its magnetic resonance imaging …or M-R-I unit … by the American College of Radiology.
Tomah Health Imaging coordinator Kim Cramblit says the accreditation represents the highest level of imaging quality and safety.
An M-R-I is a noninvasive medical test that uses magnetic fields to produce anatomical images of internal body parts to help healthcare providers diagnose and treat various medical conditions.
Cramblit said the M-R-I accreditation is another step in the department’s strategy of excellence in care.
Last year the hospital received a three-year accreditation of its computed tomography …or C-T unit ….also by the American College of Radiology.
