2004, Monmouth Medical Center was awarded a three-year
accreditation by the American
College of Radiology (ACR) for its16-Slice CT Scanner – the
first accreditation of this advanced CT technology in New
In 2003, Monmouth Medical Center became the
first hospital in New Jersey to gain accreditation
from the American College of Radiology that recognizes the
safety and appropriateness of its computed tomography (CT)
Through this achievement, Monmouth joined just 60
hospitals nationwide that have achieved this accreditation,
which was developed by the American College of Radiology
(ACR) out of concerns about the excessive use of CT procedures,
as well as in response to the widespread report of excessive
radiation doses in pediatric CT procedures. The ACR implemented
this new CT accreditation program in late 2002 to evaluate
facilities in several categories, including the qualifications
of the radiologists, technologists, and physicists, equipment
performance, effectiveness of quality control programs and
quality of clinical images and radiation doses.
In 2002, Monmouth Medical Center achieved accreditation
from the American College of Radiology for performance
of its state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging system — a
distinction achieved less than a year after Monmouth introduced
the breakthrough technology.
To earn this three-year status, Monmouth successfully completed
an accreditation process by the Reston, Va.-based organization
that included the evaluation of personnel qualifications,
equipment performance, effectiveness of quality control measures
and the quality of clinical images.
Radiology at Monmouth also holds accreditation
in Ultrasound and its Breast Center is accredited in Mammography,
Ultrasound, and Stereotactic Biopsy.
