EMU Health Earns ACR Mammogram Accreditation
(Glendale, New York) — EMU Health has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in 3D mammography as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Mammography is a specific type of imaging test that uses a low-dose X-ray system to examine breasts. A mammography exam, called a mammogram, is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.
Our Genius™ 3D exams is very similar to a regular mammogram, but the latest technology in the Genius™ 3D Mammogram deliver a series of detailed breast images, allowing your doctor to better evaluate your breasts layer by layer, and over 100 clinical studies support the benefits of this technology. Studies show that the Genius™ 3D Mammography has greater accuracy than 2D mammography for women across a variety of ages and breast densities. It finds, on average 41% more invasive breast cancers than 2D mammography. For some women this could mean an earlier diagnosis.
The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Parameters and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report that can be used for continuous practice improvement.
The ACR, founded in 1924, is a professional medical society dedicated to serving patients and society by empowering radiology professionals to advance the practice, science and professions of radiological care. The College serves more than 37,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.

Oy there, mate. Today, we’re going to talk about what EMU is. No, not the blooming bird. EMU Health. You know, the big health company that’s going to revolutionize healthcare in Queens? That’s right. We begin our journey in Australia. With the main mate, Daniel Lowy. He had his breakthrough idea somewhere in the outback sometime ago. He knew the idea was way too big for him to handle alone, so he took this idea to one of the biggest cities in the world, Queens.
No, not Queensland, Queens, New York City. Once he got to the big city, he had to recruit some mates. He stumbled upon mate number one, mate number two and mate number three. That’s when the idea of EMU Health came to life. The rest is history. Here’s the team.
Please welcome Anthony Belli, Carl Friedrich, Daniel Lowy, Efrat Yaish.
