Accreditation


The ICANL is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of quality nuclear cardiology, nuclear medicine, and positron emission tomography (PET) diagnostic evaluations. The ICANL provides a peer-review process of accreditation by which nuclear laboratories can evaluate and demonstrate their level of patient services provided. Such an evaluation process is important, given the high level of accountability to which healthcare organizations are now held by peers, the general public, and Medicare and other payers.

Regarding: Accredited Echocardiography Laboratory

One American dies every 32 seconds of cardiovascular disease, disorders of the heart and blood vessels. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, costing society over 83.7 billion dollars each year in health services, medications and lost work time due to disability. Cardiac structure and flow information provided by echocardiographic testing is useful in the detection and management of many types of heart disease. This noninvasive test has become one of the standard diagnostic tools in cardiology with an estimated 10 million echocardiograms performed annually in the United States. Echocardiography is a complex imaging technique that relies on the experience and training of both the physician and sonographer. Their interpretive and technical abilities determine the diagnostic accuracy of an echocardiographic examination. The Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL) has developed an accreditation program which evaluates the quality of these and other critical elements of an echocardiography laboratory.
