Breast Imaging Center of Excellence
The Middlesex Hospital Department of Radiology at the Outpatient Center on Saybrook Road in Middletown has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
By awarding the facility the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes that the breast imaging center has earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy).
In addition, digital mammography and breast ultrasound services at all Middlesex Hospital sites are ACR accredited, demonstrating the highest level of quality.
The Middlesex Hospital Department of Radiology at the Outpatient Center provides the full complement of breast imaging services, all in a private women’s imaging area. These services are a component of the Middlesex Hospital Comprehensive Breast Center (CBC), one of the first centers of its kind in the state, accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.
The CBC promotes strategies for screening and prevention of breast disease and works hand-in-hand with the Middlesex Hospital Cancer Center to coordinate treatment for women with breast cancer. It provides clinical, diagnostic and support services to patients, before, during and after their diagnosis and treatment.
