Middletown, N.Y. – April 24, 2014 – Crystal Run Healthcare has received accreditation for their Electroencephalography (EEG) laboratory from the EEG Laboratory Accreditation Board (LAB-EEG) of American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET). This accreditation by ABRET is valid for five years and confirms Crystal Run Healthcare has met or exceeded strict technical standards and verifies patients are receiving the highest quality diagnostics. Crystal Run is the first and only EEG laboratory accredited in New York State.
Crystal Run Healthcare’s EEG laboratory is an integral part of the practice’s Neurology division. Crystal Run neurologists investigate, diagnose and treat neurological disorders, which include diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. “We are very happy to be recognized by ABRET for the hard work we have done in our EEG laboratory. ABRET is the gold standard for accrediting EEG laboratories and a measure by which all labs should be judged as they confirm that patients are receiving the highest quality diagnostics. Crystal Run prides itself on providing the highest quality care and ABRET’s accreditation is further validation of just that,” said David Jaeger, MD, PhD, Neurology Division Leader at Crystal Run Healthcare.
The American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists is the credentialing board for EEG, Evoked Potential, Long Term Monitoring, and Neurophysiologic Intraoperative Monitoring Technologists. ABRET was organized in 1964 through a joint effort by the American Society of Electroencephalographic Technologists (ASET) and the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society (formerly American EEG Society). The Laboratory Accreditation Board was founded in 2004.
