By awarding breast centers this status the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in stereotactic breast biopsy and breast ultrasound with ultrasound-guided biopsy in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.

As an American College of Radiology (ACR) Accredited Breast Center of Excellence, we follow the pratice standards and guidelines recommended by the ACR. The ACR position is that "thermography has not been demonstrated to have value as a screening, diagnostic, or adjunctive imaging tool".
