The goal of the ACR National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR) is to develop evidence on the practice of radiology in order to improve the quality of patient care. One component of achieving this goal is to disseminate information on the status and changes in practice through careful research and publication in high-quality and high-impact venues.
Data Access and Publication Policy
ACR welcomes all requests for analysis using data from the NRDR. Applications for data use will be accepted from a wide variety of requestors including registry participants, non-registry participants, industry and governmental organizations.
To ensure the dissemination of high-quality evidence and the stewardship of registry data, all NRDR research requests are reviewed by a registry specific Data Request Review Panel composed of members from the individual registry committees and the NRDR staff and guided by the NRDR Steering Committee Chair.
Registry data are not provided for off-site analysis. For approved applications, an ACR data analyst works with the requestor(s) to fulfill the data request.
