Certain types of biopsies can be performed in the breast care center by Mercy radiologists. These radiologists also read mammograms and other diagnostic images from the center. This helps ensure that exams are interpreted in a timely manner and also facilitates consultation with other local providers.
Mercy Regional Medical Center's mammography services are accredited according to the federally mandated standards of the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA), as determined by an FDA-credentialed surveyor. The hospital's MRI services are accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after peer-reviewing evaluation of a facility's personnel and equipment.
