Welcome to the District of Columbia Metropolitan Radiological Society. The DCMRS is a chapter of the American College of Radiology. This site was developed in order to enhance and promote communication with our members.
The DCMRS actively represents its members in the District of Columbia in D.C. regulatory and legislative matters and in the Medicare Carrier Advisory Committee. The DCMRS sponsors 5 meetings annually for CME and also sponsors weekend CME courses in mammography.
MissionThe mission of the DCMRS is the same as the ACR; advancing the science of radiology, improving radiological services to patients and the medical community, studying the economics of radiology, encouraging improved and continuing education for radiologists, and establishing and maintaining high medical and ethical standards in the practice of radiology.
The DCMRS chapter meetings are held monthly at the Cosmos Club , 2121 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20008. Parking is complimentary for Club members and associates. The venue is also accessible by Metro using the red line.
