Where You are Screened May Matter

When I was at the my surgeon’s office, I picked up an NAPBC leaflet describing the benefits of NAPBC accreditation. NAPBC stands for the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. What it means is that a center that is accredited has gone through a rigorous process to assure that their standards meet or exceed what several prestigious industry organizations demand.

While a center that is not accredited may be doing an excellent job, the centers that are accredited have a stamp of approval, so if you are deciding between Center A and Center B, you might want to vie for the one that has accreditation.

To find out if your breast center is accredited by NAPBC, check their map of facilities in the United States.
