Improving the quality and safety of patient care is a core element of the ACR mission. The College takes a proactive and aggressive approach on key issues impacting radiology.
The ACR Diagnostic Imaging Center of Excellence™ achievement is a new program that takes your department or practice to the next level of imaging efficiency, safety and quality care.
The ACR Appropriateness Criteria® are evidence-based guidelines to assist referring physicians and others in making the most appropriate imaging or treatment decision for a specific clinical condition. By employing these guidelines, providers enhance quality of care and contribute to the most efficacious use of radiology.
The ACR Practice Parameters and Technical Standards help advance the science of radiology and improve the quality of service to patients. They promote the safe and effective use of diagnostic and therapeutic radiology by describing specific training, skills and techniques.
Comparing practice performance to regional and national benchmarks is an important tool for improving the quality of patient care. ACR's National Radiology Data Registry will help your facility benchmark outcomes and process-of-care measures and develop quality improvement programs.
RADPEER™ is a simple, cost-effective process that allows peer review to be performed during the routine interpretation of current images.
