– Your hospital, clinic or health center has voluntarily gone through a rigorous review process to be sure it meets nationally-accepted standards
– The personnel are well qualified, through education and certification, to perform and interpret your medical images and administer your radiation therapy treatments
– The equipment is appropriate for the test or treatment you will receive, and the facility meets or exceeds quality assurance and safety guidelines
