ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards Starting January 15, 2016, the ACR will discontinue support for browsers that do not meet minimum requirements for transmitting sensitive data. This is due to recent changes in regulations related to health care privacy and personal data security. After this date, the ACR will support only the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome (version 22+)
  • Firefox (version 27+)
  • Safari (version 5+)
  • Internet Explorer (version 10+)

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. Learn more »

The ACR 2015 Annual Meeting had many interesting developments. The three collaborative radiation oncology practice parameters for this year were approved by the Council Steering Committee and the Board of Chancellors. The effective date for these documents will be August 1, 2015. The rest of the 2015 Practice Parameters and Technical Standards adopted at ACR 2015 go into effect on October 1, 2015.

The ACR Council adopted two resolutions during the ACR 2015 Annual Meeting that will impact Practice Parameter processes:

  1. An expedited approval process for ACR-AAPM collaborative medical physics practice parameters and technical standards
  2. An expedited review process for practice parameters and technical standards to allow the ACR more flexibility in responding to new health care developments or critical issues.

More information will be available as these processes are developed and finalized.
