Practice Quality Improvement (PQI) is a framework to facilitate improvement of medical care and/or its delivery for an individual physician, group, or institution.

To comply with Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV (Practice Performance Assessment) requirements with the American Board of Radiology (ABR) or the American Board of Nuclear Medicine (ABNM), radiologists or medical physicists need to complete Practice Quality Improvement projects according to the specific Board’s schedule.

All ACR National Radiology Data Registries (NRDR) have been approved as the basis for an ABR PQI project:

In addition, a Value-Based Radiology PQI Project is currently available in beta-testing.

Registration assistance and technical questions should be directed to Lu Meyer of the ACR at 800-227-5463, ext. 4958 or lmeyer@acr.org.
