Coulis Cardiology Receives Prestigious Accreditation in Nuclear Medicine

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. - January, 2012 - Coulis Cardiology is proud to announce it recently received a three-year term of accreditation in Nuclear Cardiology from the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Laboratories (ICANL).

This prestigious accreditation by ICANL means a panel of experts, after a thorough review of Coulis Cardiology's operational and technical components, has found the practice's high-quality patient care to be in compliance with national standards of nuclear medicine.

Patients can rely on this ICANL accreditation as a seal of approval that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations relating to nuclear medicine. The accreditation is widely respected in the medical community and supported by multiple national societies of physicians, nuclear medicine technologists and medical physicists.

Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the United States. On average, one American dies every 38 seconds of cardiovascular disease.

The use of nuclear cardiology procedures to detect cardiovascular disease is yet another reason Coulis Cardiology, the region's only independent cardiology practice, has been able to deliver exceptional, comprehensive heart care with easy access, swift scheduling and a patient-first philosophy for more than 15 years.
