Vascular laboratory accreditation 2017-01-28T09:41:03-05:00


Today’s health care organizations are held to very high levels of accountability – by peers, by the general public, and by Medicare and other payers. The 
Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories(ICAVL) accreditation is a means by which noninvasive vascular laboratories can evaluate and demonstrate the level of patient care they provide.


The physicians, technologists, and sonographers on the ICAVL Board Of Directors composed The Standards (formerly the Essentials and Standards), an extensive document defining the minimal requirements for vascular laboratories to provide high quality care. The Standards are used by laboratories as both a guideline and the foundation to create and achieve realistic quality care goals.
