Economics & Health Policy

The ACR focuses on how radiologists and radiation oncologists are reimbursed for their services. The department collects, analyzes and disseminates information on economic issues relevant to the practice of radiology, radiation oncology and related medical issues.


As health care and technology continue to advance, radiologists have become leaders in imaging informatics and in applying technological advances to practical medical use. The ACR is at the forefront of this effort, with tools to help find common ground and reach common expectations within a rapidly evolving landscape.
