MOC and CME Information

Physicians participating in an R-SCAN project may claim MOC Part IV and Performance Improvement Continuing Medical Education (PI-CME) upon project completion. Physicians planning to claim MOC or PI-CME must be included in the R-SCAN project registration and be able to describe their project role. For example, project definition and planning, case data review, educational material development, educational intervention delivery, participation in an educational intervention, or changing patterns of imaging exam ordering.

Maintenance of Certification Part IV

American Board of Internal Medicine

Qualified by the American Board of Internal Medicine

Clinicians claiming MOC Part IV for their participation in an R-SCAN project must be included in the project registration form and be able to describe their role in the R-SCAN project related to the planning and execution of a project, i.e., project definition, case data review, educational material development, or delivery of educational presentation.

Successful completion of this activity enables the participant to earn 20 Practice Assessment points (and patient safety credit) in the American Board of Internal Medicine's Maintenance of Certification program. It is the sponsor's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ABIM for the purpose of granting MOC points.

R-SCAN Project Improvement (PI)-CME

Participants starting an R-SCAN project on or after April 1, 2019, are eligible to receive PI-CME AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ upon successful completion.

Physicians must be able to describe their role in the project related to each stage as described below in the "How to Claim CME Credit" section.

Accreditation Statement

The American College of Radiology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation Statement

The American College of Radiology designates this Performance Improvement CME for a maximum of 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Physicians are eligible to be awarded AMA PRA Category 1 Credit. The AMA defines physicians as those individuals who have obtained an MD, DO, or equivalent medical degree from another country.

All other participants in this PI-CME activity may receive a Certificate of Participation that documents participation in an activity designated for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. For the purposes of recertification, other certification boards may award equivalent Continuing Education (CE) credit when presented with a Certificate of Participation from an activity that was designated for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit. ACR suggests that learners check with their licensing board to ensure they accept reciprocity with AMA Category 1 Credit.

CME Released: April 1, 2019
CME Expires: March 31, 2022

How to Claim CME Credit

There are three stages to every accredited PI-CME activity, as outlined below. Credit may be claimed after completion of Stage C.* Each participant may receive up to a maximum of 20 credits per project.

  • Stage A: Baseline case review (5 credits)
  • Stage B: Educational intervention (5 credits)
  • Stage C: Post-education case review (10 credits) 

When the post-education case review has been completed and the Project Completion form has been submitted in the R-SCAN portal, all project participants will receive an email with instructions on how to claim the 20 credits for the entire project and receive their CME certificate.

*Sites that elect not to complete their project may claim up to 10 credits for any completed stages by submitting a CME Request for Incomplete R-SCAN Project form.
