SMC EEG Lab Becomes Accreditated

April 4, 2017

Springhill Medical Center's EEG Lab is now Accredited by the EEG Laboratory Accreditation Board of ABRET (LAB-EEG).

ABRET's Lab Accreditation process evaluates technical standards, the quality of the laboratory's output and lab management issues.  Successful Accreditation means the EEG Laboratory has met strict standards and is to be recognized as a place where patients and physicians can have confidence they are receiving quality diagnostics.

ABRET Neurodiagnostic Credentialing and Accreditation is the credentialing board for EEG, Evoked Potential, Long Term Monitoring, Neurophysiologic intraoperative Monitoring Technologists and Autonomic Testing Professionals. ABRET was organized in 1964 through a joint effort by ASET: The Neurodiagnostic Society, and the American EEG Society (now the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society). The Laboratory Accreditation Board was founded in 2004.
