We are proud to announce that The Vein Institute has been accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) in Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound. Peripheral vascular ultrasound focuses on the blood vessels in the arms and, most importantly to The Vein Institute, the legs. The core purpose of the ACR is “to serve patients and society by empowering members to advance the practice, science and professions of radiological care”. Accredited facilities must meet rigorous standards and have proven their proficiency in the areas of image acquisition, physician reporting, and quality control. The accreditation process is just one way The Vein Institute’s ultrasound team, led by Kelley Swagler, RT, RDMS, shows their commitment to remaining leaders in their field.
