The Vascular Lab of West Michigan has been only physician based vascular lab in Muskegon accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in Vascular Technology since 2004. We are accredited in the areas of Extracranial Cerebrovascular, Peripheral Arterial, Peripheral Venous and Visceral Vascular.
What does it mean to be accredited?
The accreditation process consists of submitting actual case studies for a peer-review by IAC's trained reviewers and the Board of Directors. Receiving accreditation acknowledges that our laboratory abides by all guidelines and standards of the accrediting commission regarding quality Doppler examinations, quality assurance and continuing education.
What is IAC?
ICA stands for the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission. It was created in 1990 by physicians, technologists and sonographers who were all dedicated to promoting high quality noninvasive vascular diagnostic testing. Together they developed the standards that are now used by laboratories as a guideline and a foundation to achieve quality care. IAC was formerly the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories until renamed in 2012.
