Lung Cancer Screening Registry

The ACR Lung Cancer Screening Registry™ (LCSR) is approved by CMS to enable providers to meet quality reporting requirements for receiving Medicare CT lung cancer screening payment. Participants receive quarterly reports for their facility, with peer comparisons, as well as data for individual physicians to help refine and improve lung cancer screening for everyone.

The LCSR also offers additional quality measures to fulfill reporting requirements for the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

  • Register each facility that will perform lung cancer screening CT
  • Complete and return a signed participation agreement to NRDR
