Accreditations

As part of our mission to provide the highest quality of medical imaging, we place a high priority on meeting rigorous standards established by the following accreditation organizations.

SIR – Society Of Interventional Radiology
The Society of Interventional Radiology is a national organization of physicians, scientists and allied health professionals dedicated to improving public health through disease management and minimally invasive, image-guided therapeutic interventions.
SVS – Society For Vascular Surgery
The Society for Vascular Surgery® (SVS) is a not-for-profit professional medical society, composed primarily of vascular surgeons, that seeks to advance excellence and innovation in vascular health through education, advocacy, research, and public awareness.
IAC – Intersocietal Accreditation Commission
The IAC Vascular Laboratory accreditation program ensures high quality patient care through a detailed assessment of standards in vascular sonographic imaging of both arterial and venous anatomy in various applications from the study of peripheral veins to visceral arteries and aortic aneurysms. The accreditation must be maintained and renewed periodically, ensuring a long-term commitment to quality care and accountability.
ABR – American Board of Radiology
The American Board of Radiology is one of 24 medical specialty boards that make up the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). The ABR establishes common standards for physicians to achieve and maintain board certification in diagnostic imaging. The board was founded to protect the public by assessing and certifying doctors who meet rigorous educational, training and professional requirements. All of our RAF interventional radiologists are board certified in Diagnostic Radiology by the ABR. All of our interventional radiologists also have an added CAQ (Certificate of Added Qualification) offered by the ABR in the field of Interventional Radiology.

AMERICAN BOARD OF SURGERY
The American Board of Surgery is an independent, nonprofit organization founded in 1937 to certify individuals who have met a defined standard of education, training and knowledge in the field of surgery. Surgeons certified by the ABS, known as diplomates, have completed at least five years of surgical residency training following medical school and successfully completed a written and oral examination process administered by the ABS. Successful completion of the Vascular Surgery Qualifying and Certifying Examinations is required for board certification in vascular surgery. Both Drs. D’Addio and Koenig are board certified in Vascular Surgery through the American Board of Surgery.

VIRGINIA COUNCIL OF NURSE PRACTITIONERS
The Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners (VCNP), the statewide professional organization for all nurse practitioners (NPs) licensed in Virginia, and is a council of the Virginia Nurses Association (VNA) Commission on Professional Practice. The organization of NPs in Virginia began a quarter century ago in the regional or local areas of the state.
VIRGINIA ACADEMY OF PHYSICIANS ASSISTANTS
The Virginia Academy of Physician Assistants serves the needs of PAs through strengthening and promoting the PA profession throughout Virginia. VAPA promotes continuing education for its members, provides PA employment information to PAs and physicians, and strengthens the role of PAs by supporting and encouraging membership in VAPA.
ACCREDITATION ASSOCIATION FOR AMBULATORY HEALTH CARE
The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) is a private, non-profit organization formed in 1979. We are the leader in developing standards to advance and promote patient safety, quality care, and value for ambulatory health care through peer-based accreditation processes, education, and research. A certificate of accreditation is awarded to organizations that are found to be in compliance with AAAHC Standards. VIVA is accredited as an office based surgery center.
