Go To Field Review 

 
The dates for the field review of the ACR Practice Parameters and Technical Standards to be presented at the ACR 2018 meeting are:

First Field Review    August 14 – September 1, 2017 
Second Field Review    September 5 – September 22, 2017
Third Field Review    September 25 – October 13, 2017
Fourth Field Review    October 16 – November 3, 2017

 
The Practice Parameters and Technical Standards that will be presented at the ACR annual meeting are available for review and commenting by the entire ACR membership during field review. This is the time changes to the documents can be suggested by ACR members and collaborating societies and considered by the Committee.

It is important that everyone who has an interest in the content of the practice parameters and technical standards review the documents and provide feedback during the Field Review Process.

The documents are placed in one of four scheduled field reviews and are available for review and commenting ONLY for those three weeks of the field review. Members will be informed through multiple ACR communications and marketing channels.

The ACR Practice Parameters and Technical Standards process in brief:

  • FORM the committee
     
  • FINALIZE the draft document in committee
     
  • REVIEW the draft document by the entire ACR membership and collaborating societies

    This is the FIELD REVIEW.


    ALL proposed changes need to be proposed and reviewed prior to the ACR annual meeting.
     
  • APPROVE the draft document at the ACR annual meeting. This is not the time for editing the document. Any substantive changes presented at the ACR annual meeting can sideline the document approval process and delay implementation of important updates for an entire year.
