Want to become more patient- and family-centered in your practice?

The Radiologist’s Toolkit for Patient- and Family-Centered Care offers practice-specific online resources to help radiologists enhance patient-engagement skills and offer more patient-centered care.

The ACR Appropriateness Criteria are now connecting with a larger patient audience via JACR Patient-Friendly Summaries. This peer-reviewed resource connects a patient with a physician to explain situation-specific imaging in lay terms.
