Northern Dutchess Hospital’s CT Scan earns accreditation

Posted: 6/13/2017

Northern Dutchess Hospital’s radiology department recently received a three-year accreditation in CT imaging as the result of a review by the American College of Radiology, a professional medical society.

Northern Dutchess offers computed tomography (CT) scans as a noninvasive medical test to help physicians diagnose and tailor treatments for various medical conditions.

“The American College of Radiology’s gold seal accreditation is our version of an A on our report card,” said Paul King, the hospital’s director of radiology. “To earn this A, board-certified experts reviewed our CT scans, staff qualifications, equipment, facility and procedures, and scored us at the highest level achievable. We’re very proud.”

The department’s accreditation is good through 2020.
