TUCC's state-of-the-art facility provides patients with the latest advancements in medical technology. All laboratory, pathology, CT, ultrasound and urodynamic testing are performed in-house to ensure an accurate and prompt diagnosis. The implementation of high technology devices and techniques allow our physicians to accomplish procedures quickly and with decreased patient recovery time - patients can often return to the comfort of their homes on the same day of their outpatient procedure.
CT scans at TUCC are performed by highly trained technologists who are supervised by experienced radiologists. The staff are well acquainted with modern techniques to minimize radiation exposure during scanning. TUCC imaging staff adhere to the ALARA concept: the radiation dose should be As Low As Reasonably Achievable to obtain high-quality diagnostic images.

Our center was recently awarded a three-year term of accreditation in computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound as the result of a survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR). TUCC is the only urology practice in Colorado to be awarded an accreditation for ultrasound and one of only two practices to be awarded the CT accreditation.
The TUCC laboratory is also fully accredited by COLA, a national health care accreditation association. Accreditation is given only to laboratories that apply rigid standards of quality in day-to-day operations, demonstrate continued accuracy in the performance of proficiency testing and pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey.
The Urology Surgery Center of Colorado (USCC) is now accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC). USCC is one of only 11 ambulatory surgery centers in Colorado to be accredited in the field of urology.
