Draft practice parameters and technical standards for 2020 are available. We invite all members to review and comment on the documents that will be released in 2020.
The draft parameters and standards are grouped into one of four field review cycles; each cycle lasts three weeks.
2020 Field Review Cycles*
August 19 – September 6, 2019 (Closed)

At the end of each cycle, the comments are reviewed by the relevant subcommittee for discussion and possible revision. The applicable collaborating societies also review and approve them before ACR finalizes them at the annual meeting.
