(June 7, 2010 – Sarasota, FL)
The computed tomography laboratory at Dattoli Cancer Center & Brachytherapy Research Institute has been notified that it has been granted accreditation by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Computed Tomography Laboratories (ICACTL).
The laboratory, supervised by Donald Bryant, R.T.(R)(T)(C) ARRT, under the direction of Michael Dattoli, MD, is one of the first 500 laboratories world-wide to achieve this stringent accreditation status.
There are estimated to be 62 million CT scans performed in the US each year. CT is a complex imaging technique that relies on the experience and training of both the physician and the technologist. Their interpretive and technical abilities determine the diagnostic accuracy of the CT examination. Accreditation by the ICACTL attests to the quality of these and other critical elements of a CT laboratory.
Applying for accreditation is voluntary and underscores the facility’s commitment to high quality patient care and its willingness to adhere to the ICACTL’s nationally recognized, intersocietal standards for the performance of quality CT procedures.
Dattoli Cancer Center, internationally renowned for non-surgical treatment of prostate cancer, has been operating in Sarasota, FL for nearly 10 years. The Dattoli CT lab provides CT scans for approximately 400 patients each year.
