      Personnel and department accreditation are means by which institutions can evaluate, demonstrate, and maintain the highest level of patient care. In this article, we will discuss the certification and the resources for physicians (RPVI) and technologists (RVT) who provide care to patients in the vascular lab (VL) as well as information about certification by the two accrediting bodies – the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) – that accredit VLs. Noninvasive vascular testing provides timely delivered valuable information to healthcare providers. Accreditation recognizes quality vascular testing services, but also facilitates a process of education and the quality assurance to improve the overall quality of vascular labs (VL).
