Infinity Imaging LLC earns Echocardiography accreditation by IAC
Echocardiography is used to assess different areas of the heart and can detect heart disease or signs of serious cardiovascular
conditions. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, followed closely by stroke as the fourth highest
cause of death. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), more than 2,150 Americans die each day from
cardiovascular disease which amounts to about one every 40 seconds.
There are many factors that contribute to an accurate diagnosis based on echocardiography. The training and experience of the
sonographer performing the procedure, the type of equipment used and the quality assessment metrics each facility is required
to measure, all contribute to a positive patient outcome. IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an
indicator of consistent quality care and a dedication to continuous improvement.
Infinity Imaging LLC located in Arlington Heights, IL has been granted a three-year term of accreditation by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in Echocardiography in the area(s) of Adult Stress and Adult Transthoracic.
Accreditation by the IAC means that Infinity Imaging LLC has undergone an intensive application and review process and is
found to be compliance with the published Standards thus demonstrating a commitment to quality patient care in
echocardiography. Comprised of a detailed self-evaluation followed by a thorough review by a panel of medical experts, the
IAC accreditation process enables both the critical operational and technical components of the applicant facility to be
assessed, including representative case studies and their corresponding final reports.
IAC accreditation is widely respected in the medical community, as illustrated by the support of the national medical societies
related to echocardiography, which include physicians and sonographers. IAC Echocardiography is supported by the following
organizations while operating independently of their activities: American Society of Echocardiography (ASE); Society of
Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS); and Society of Pediatric Echocardiography (SOPE).
When scheduling an echocardiography procedure, patients are encouraged to research the accreditation status of the facility and can learn more by visiting intersocietal.org/echo/main/patients.htm.
IAC provides accreditation programs for vascular testing, echocardiography, nuclear/PET, MRI, diagnostic CT, dental CT,
carotid stenting, vein treatment and management and cardiac electrophysiology. The IAC programs for accreditation are
dedicated to ensuring quality patient care and promoting health care and all support one common mission: Improving health
care through accreditation®. To date, the IAC accrediting divisions have granted accreditation to more than 14,000 sites
throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
