March 5, 2010

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Neuroultrasound Lab at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center has been reaccredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories (ICAVL) for its commitment to providing a high level of patient care and quality testing in the diagnosis of vascular disease.

“We work to ensure that our staff is up-to-date on the most current recommendations and guidelines,” said Mike Waid, administrative director of diagnostic neurology. “Gaining this recognition gives our patients reassurance that we are maintaining our high standards.”

The ICAVL accreditation process reviews every aspect of the laboratory’s daily operations and its impact on the quality of health care provided to the patients. Accreditation is valid for three years.
