Capitol Imaging Services’ facility in Marrero, LA received a renewal in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Awarded by the American College of Radiology (ACR), The ACR’s MRI Accreditation Program evaluates the qualifications of personnel, the quality control program, MR safety policies and image quality specific to MRI. All providers that bill for MRI under part B of the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule must be accredited in order to receive technical component reimbursement from Medicare.

People who are referred for MRI studies should make sure that the center they are choosing is accredited in MRI. In addition, all MRI technologists are registered with the American Registry of Registered Technologists (ARRT). The ARRT tests, certifies, and annually registers more than a quarter-of-a-million radiologic technologists to promote high standards of patient care. They award the “Registered Technologist,” or “R.T.,” designation to individuals who have completed the prescribed classroom and clinical education, passed the appropriate exam, and met the ethics requirements. And, the ARRT ensures their continuing education and ongoing compliance with our high standards by requiring annual registration of their certificate.

Capitol Imaging Services offers a broad range of MRI service offerings that includes 3T ultra high field MRI, high field MRI, high field open MRI and open MRI. Our affiliate network provides more appointment times and capacity so that people do not have to wait several days (or even weeks) to have their exam completed. Why wait? Your health and well-being is too important!
