The Cardiac Center of Texas offers three echocardiography and vascular labs with ICAEL Accreditations.

What does it mean to be ICAEL accredited?

Private offices, clinics and departments within hospitals that are accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL) voluntarily submit to a review of their daily operations. By participating in the accreditations process, these medical facilities demonstrate a commitment to the performance of quality echocardiography and strive to meet nationally recognized standards.

During the accreditations process, applicant echocardiography laboratories must submit documentation on every aspect of their daily operations. Accreditations are granted only to those facilities that are found to be providing quality patient care, in compliance with the ICAEL Standards. Once granted, ICAEL accreditations are valid for a period of three years, after which time the facility must undergo a repeat evaluation.

What does accreditation mean to the patient?

Patients can rely on accreditations as an indication that the facility where their examination will be performed has proven a commitment to providing quality testing for the diagnosis of heart disorders and disease. Patients can rest assured that accredited facilities have been carefully critiqued on all aspects of their operations considered relevant by medical experts in the field of echocardiography.

The Cardiac Center of Texas also has ACR Accreditations for both CT and Nuclear Medicine.

What Does It Mean to be Accredited by the ACR?

The American College of Radiology (ACR) awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of its practice. Image quality and procedure evaluations are conducted by board-certified radiologists and medical physicists who are experts in the field. The program also evaluates personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs. All findings are reported to the practice via a comprehensive report that includes recommendations for improvement.
