In order to get the best results, you need qualified people performing the test on up-to-date, well maintained equipment.

To help assure the appropriate result, take the following steps when setting a facility for the scan:

Step 1: Check facility accreditation

  • The facility should be accredited by the ACR (American College of Radiology). ACR sets minimum standards for the quality of the equipment and personnel training. If your doctor does not know whether a facility is accredited by the ACT, you can ask when you call for an appointment.
