This mammogram machine remains idle at Allen County Regional Hospital, awaiting a review for certification by the American College of Radiology.

Mammography services at Allen County Regional Hospital could return this fall, CEO Tony Thompson said. 

The hospital lost accreditation of its mammography services in May 2017, when the American College of Radiology (ACR), acting on behalf of the Food and Drug Administration, determined ACRH failed to meet ?clinical image quality standards.? Since then, no mammograms have been performed at ACRH.

In the ongoing Ask the Register series, Iolan Travis West queried, ?Why hasn?t ACRH provided mammogram services for over a year now? What has been the effect on women?s health??
