SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Hospital has once again been designated a Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence – the highest level of recognition awarded by the American College of Radiology. 

The hospital first earned the designation in 2017 and has remained the only Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence in the Capital Region since. Redesignation was awarded this fall and applies to all imaging services at Saratoga Hospital, its Wilton campus, and mammography and bone density imaging on the Malta campus. 

To earn the Center of Imaging designation, facilities must first be accredited in each imaging service for which the American College of Radiology offers an accreditation program. 

In addition, Centers of Excellence must participate in national radiology data registries as part of benchmarking and quality improvement efforts and must take steps to limit patients’ exposure to radiation. This includes using the lowest possible dose of radiation during imaging procedures and avoiding unnecessary imaging exams.
