ACR Accreditation

 

In order to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality images possible, the Oakland MRI Center has become an ACR accredited facility. To achieve this status, an imaging facility must follow strict guidelines and undergo rigorous testing and extensive image evaluations by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

The ACR awards accreditation to those facilities who exhibit both high standards of practice and exceptional image quality. These evalutions are conducted by radiologists and physicists with the ACR who have specific knowledge and expertise in MRI. In order to stay accredited by the ACR, the Oakland MRI Center must be evaluated every 2 years.

The staff here at the Oakland MRI Center would like assure our patients that we are committed to providing them with the utmost care while obtaining the best possible images available, now and well into the future.

BREAST ULTRASOUND

Oakland MRI & Diagnostics Center is pleased to offer Breast Ultrasound services to our facility.  We are able to now offer this service in conjunction with Mammography.  Our ultrasound technologists are very knowledgeable and have many years of experience combined as well as being nationally trained and certified.

Our goal is to provide a warm and welcoming environment.  Patient's that need an ultrasound study performed after a mammogram no longer need to leave our facility. We are able to schedule multiple procedures within the same visit.

Ultrasound of the breast uses sound waves to produce pictures of the internal structures of the breast.  It is primarily used to help diagnose breast lumps or other abnormalities your doctor may have found during a physical exam as well as abnormalities found during your screening mammogram. 

With our Breast Ultrasound service we are also able to offer cyst aspirations and breast biopsies if an abnormality is found. We also perform needle localizations for surgeries needing to be completed.

Most Breast Ultrasounds last between 15 to 30 minutes and are usually painless.  

Results of your Breast Ultrasounds are primarily given the same day at Oakland MRI & Diagnostics Center, and your referring doctor will receive the results within a 24 hour period.
