Desert Radiology Designated an ACR Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence
Desert Radiology, a premier diagnostic imaging company that has served Southern Nevada for over 50 years, has been designated once again as a Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence™ (DICOE) by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
The DICOE program, which represents the pinnacle of medical imaging care, is an achievement that goes beyond accreditation to recognize best-quality imaging practices and diagnostic care. This includes a comprehensive assessment of the entire medical imaging enterprise, including structure and outcomes. The DICOE designation recognizes excellence at multiple levels — including the professional staff, the technology and the policies and procedures the organization follows — and superior patient care.
In order to receive this elite distinction, facilities must be accredited by the ACR in all modalities they provide, and in which the ACR offers an accreditation program. Another requirement is to participate in the Dose Index Registry® and General Radiology Improvement Database, as well as Image Wisely® and Image Gently®.
The ACR, founded in 1924, is one of the largest and most influential medical associations in the United States. The ACR devotes its resources to making imaging and radiation therapy safe, effective and accessible to those who need it. Its 36,000 members include radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists, interventional radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians.

Dr. Agrawal Performs a Miracle
Miranda Wenske came to Las Vegas last summer to celebrate her birthday and wedding anniversary, not to try to kill herself. But try she did, just as she’d unwittingly done for years. She would have succeeded if it hadn’t been for Dr. Raj Agrawal, who knew how to use a vacuum cleaner. When a patient was admitted to Spring Valley Hospital, Agrawal realized, to mobilize the special procedures team and use what amounts to a tiny Penumbra Inc. vacuum the Valley Health System made available to him about two years ago.
