When it comes to delivering safe and effective medical imaging radiation dose from CT and other exams, CDI is a leader. We voluntarily participate in the American College of Radiology's Dose Index Registry (DIR). Our team has many safeguards in place to ensure patient safety within our centers, while providing the highest quality diagnostic images for our patients. For CT imaging, this means ongoing refinement of how an exam is performed so we deliver the least amount of radiation possible for each patient. Read more on our work in CDI dose management.
Redefining the standard of quality in imaging.
In each local community, our commitment to our patients is the same and our values are foundational to the care we deliver. In addition, our clinical operations and administrative teams work closely with the local healthcare community, including the doctor who referred the patient to us, so we can provide easy access to high-quality imaging services and procedures.
Areas of focus and programs in which we participate include:
Quality & Safety in Medical Imaging
Quality and safety in medical imaging comes in many forms. Our staff is trained and maintains their accreditation in their areas of expertise for services we offer such as MRI, CT, Mammograms, Ultrasound and interventional work, including injections for pain, etc. Our active participation in organizations and programs, such as the American College of Radiology (ACR) and Joint Commission accreditation, etc., as appropriate to key services, helps to ensure that we continually review and improve when it comes to quality and safety.
The CDI Quality Institute
What connects our customers, doctors, clinical providers and patients, is that they all depend on quality of care. Because of this, CDI Quality Institute was founded in 2003 to define and pursue quality measures in radiology and our related service lines. Our goal is to better define and measure quality of care for our customers, in a way that makes sense to them. Read more.
Imaging for a Cause
Quality patient care and access to our services, regardless of the patient's financial means, is important to us. That's why we accept referrals and donate services and clinical care through the Imaging for a Cause Foundation. Imaging for a Cause (IFC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping each and every patient receive care as appropriate at our centers.
Our centers and services lines are accredited and voluntarily participate, as appropriate, in programs that ensure safety and quality standards.
