VCU Radiology Earns Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence Designation

Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence logo

Richmond, VA - February 2022 - The VCU Health Radiology Department has earned the prestigious Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence (DICOE) designation by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for five imaging centers: the Adult Outpatient Pavilion, Gateway, Main Hospital, Short Pump Pavilion, and Stony Point 9000. Among adult imaging centers, VCU Health is the only health system to achieve the designation in Richmond, the only academic medical center in Virginia and 1 of only 16 academic medical facilities in the United States.

The DICOE designation, a three-year status, includes a comprehensive assessment of the entire medical imaging enterprise, including structure and outcomes. This elite distinction recognizes excellence at multiple levels, including staff professionalism, technology, policies and procedures and patient care. Facilities with the DICOE designation must be accredited by the ACR in all modalities they provide, and in which the ACR offers an accreditation program. Another requirement is to participate in the Dose Index Registry, Lung Cancer Screening, Image Wisely and Image Gently initiatives.
