Phoebe PET/CAT gets ACR accreditation

ALBANY, Ga. — Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital has received accreditation from the American College of Radiology for its PET/CT (Positron Emission Tomography and Computer Tomography) examinations.

Phoebe is one of just seven centers in Georgia to receive accreditation for both oncology and neurology, and is the only health care system in Southwest Georgia to receive the honor.

The ACR awards accreditation to facilities that achieve high practice standards after peer evaluation of its practices. The program evaluates personnel qualification, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.
