Internal Medicine Associates of Campbellsville has been granted accreditation by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Laboratories.

The laboratory is one of the first nuclear cardiology laboratories in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico to be so recognized for its commitment to high quality patient care and its provision of quality diagnostic testing.

Participation in the accreditation process is voluntary. Such status signifies that the facility has been reviewed by an independent agency that recognizes the laboratory's commitment to quality testing for the diagnosis of heart disease.

The ICANL developed its accreditation program to evaluate the quality of diagnostic accuracy and other critical elements of a nuclear cardiology laboratory.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of the death in the U.S. Each year, nearly 5.5 million stress nuclear cardiology studies are performed across the nation. Interpretive and technical abilities determine the diagnostic accuracy of the examination.
