08/05/2013

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Chambersburg Hospital’s computed tomography services (CT Scan) was recently awarded an accreditation as a result of a survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

A CT scan provides physicians with a highly detailed image from inside the body using a special x-ray and high-tech computer.

Dr. George Galanis, director of diagnostic imaging at Chambersburg Hospital said of the achievement, “Being awarded this accreditation assures patients of the high quality care they are receiving with every visit.” 

“Providing our patients with excellent image quality while maintaining the greatest level of patient comfort is our main goal,” Galanis continued. “This recognition reaffirms that we are achieving these goals and using the best practices available.”

As part of the four to six month process to achieve ACR accreditation, board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field conducted evaluations and assessed the qualifications of the personnel and the quality of facility equipment.
