Overarching Goal

ACR is indispensable to all potential members.


ACR is the voice of our members, empowering them to serve patients and society by advancing the practice and science of radiological care.

The ACR empowers members, through advocacy, quality and safety, and innovation, to deliver exceptional patient care. We create and convene communities of experts to serve as the voice of radiology, demonstrating value and setting standards to advance the field and practice. We improve patient care through quality and safety activities, the best available technology, and ensuring a robust future for the radiological professions.


ACR members thrive, improving health and leading through excellence in radiological care.

Together, we are empowering the radiologist of the future – one who will guide the delivery of the highest quality healthcare. We are advancing radiology as essential and central to excellent patient care. With the strength of our diversity and unity of our purpose, ACR radiologists are leaders in integrated diagnostics and essential to the delivery of equitable, image-guided healthcare.
