Almost 20 years ago, Dr. William “Bill” Orrison realized that there was a serious disconnect between the safety and standards of equipment and the personnel involved in medical diagnostic imaging. Based on his knowledge and expertise, Dr. Orrison knew that this disconnect could result in patients being exposed to unsafe levels of radiation. With such horrible examples of misuse, Orrison had to act to help standardize the industry.

RadSite has released a completely redesigned version of its online accreditation application portal. After gathering input from applicants to understand how the application process could be streamlined and simplified for users, RadSite gained a clear understanding of the needs and wants of both consumers and imaging providers when it comes to accreditation. RadSite staff spoke with providers operating all types of advanced diagnostic imaging modalities across the country and incorporated their feedback into the revision.
RadSite’s MIPPA Accreditation Program (MAP) includes a review of personnel, policies and procedures, as well as sample clinical images and phantom studies. Applicants must submit three types of documents for review: Professional Qualifications, Professional Oversight and Policies and Procedures. This documentation is required for providers that apply for accreditation of their CT, MRI, PET and SPECT imaging systems. RadSite’s Standards V2.2 provides a detailed explanation of what is required and personal account managers are on standby to provide you with additional information and answer any questions you may have.
When you select RadSite as the accreditation program for your advanced diagnostic imaging systems, you partner with an organization committed to providing you a seal of approval that states you are a clear leader in imaging quality and patient safety.
