The ACR and TRS are the voice of radiology when it comes to important practice issues such as the pre-authorization programs for PET, MRI and CT, balance billing, radiology assistants, overutilization of medical imaging, reimbursement for radiology services and more. ACR and TRS leaders work hard to protect both our patients and the profession of radiology.
