SeRA renews designation as center of excellence

Southeastern Radiology Associates (SeRA), an affiliate of Southeastern Health, has been re-designated through 2019 as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence.

The designation requires that a facility be accredited in mammography, stereotactic (needle) breast biopsy and breast ultrasound. To meet a new requirement which was implemented January 1, 2016, SeRA has recently partnered with Wake Radiology to offer breast MRI services as needed.

Dr. James Parker, a radiologist at SeRA, said this commitment to maintaining the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) designation shows a commitment to the patients of this region.

“Getting a regular mammogram reduces the risk of dying from breast cancer,” said Dr. Parker. “We want women to understand what the BICOE designation means—this facility, our equipment, and staff, have met the very highest standards of quality.”

SeRA is the only Breast Imaging Center of Excellence in the region. According to the American College of Radiology, the designation “acknowledges their dedication to improving women’s health by participating in these rigorous quality assurance programs.”

Southeastern Radiology Associates is an outpatient imaging center that provides screening and diagnostic imaging services, including mammograms, to the region. For more information, call (910) 738-8222.
