Akron General Breast Center earns high honors
Reflections Breast Health Center deemed Imaging Center of Excellence

Akron General Reflections Breast Health Center has earned the prestigious honor of becoming an American College of Radiology (ACR) Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. This title is given to facilities that demonstrate excellence in breast imaging in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy and breast ultrasound.

The Breast Health Center has always maintained ACR mammography accreditation and last year received stereotactic breast biopsy accreditation. The breast ultrasound accreditation completes the final requirement for obtaining the status of Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. Akron General is very proud to offer this quality of breast imaging to its patients.

Personalized care is available for women at any one of Akron General’s six convenient Reflections locations. State-of-the-art digital screenings are reviewed by a team of the most highly trained physicians. Results are reviewed quickly and, in the event follow-up care is needed, patients are connected with a full support team to help guide them through the process. For more information about Reflections and our entire breast health team,visit akrongeneral.org/Reflections. To schedule an appointment, call 330-344-2462.
