Western Kentucky Diagnostic Imaging Designated an ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence

Western Kentucky Diagnostic Imaging (WKDI), a department of The Medical Center, has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR). WKDI is the first facility in Southcentral Kentucky to receive this designation.

By awarding facilities the status of Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast MRI 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 WKDI has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.

“I am very proud of the WKDI team members who have worked diligently obtaining the necessary accreditations to receive this designation from the American College of Radiology,” says Brian Stephens, Facility Radiology Services Manager at WKDI. “Our community will continue to benefit and be assured the highest level of quality care is being provided locally through Med Center Health’s Western Kentucky Diagnostic Imaging.”

Western Kentucky Diagnostic Imaging is located at 1635 Scottsville Road in Bowling Green. Appointments can be made by calling 270-780-2720 or toll free 1-888-746-9500. WKDI offers exceptional quality in clinical service, images and diagnoses, which is critical to determining a patient’s care and treatment.

The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
