San Jose Breast Care Center
The Good Samaritan Breast Care Center has been designated a Breast Imaging
Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence,
the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation
in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, and breast ultrasound (including
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.
