ACR Seeks Member Input Regarding New Breast Cancer Screening Quality, Cost Measures

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) is collecting comments related to three quality measures and one cost measure developed to support the delivery of high-quality, low-cost breast cancer screening. Acumen, LLC, which created an expert panel with guidance from ACR to develop the measures, included breast-imaging radiologists, patients and other clinicians to assess performance in breast cancer screening and diagnosis.

The College urges member participation in reviewing the measures and providing comments. Here are the links to participate:
