COVID-19 Imaging Research Registry

COVID-19 Imaging Research RegistryThe COVID-19 Imaging Research Registry (CIRR) will advance medical science’s understanding, prevention and treatment of coronavirus (COVID-19). The registry fosters integration and knowledge sharing across the clinical research community, representing clinical medicine, genetics, biomarker discovery and laboratory sciences.

The ACR will collect images and data performed as part of routine clinical care in diagnosing and treating COVID-19 patients in the U.S. since January 1, 2020. Participating sites will contribute demographic information, clinical data on signs and symptoms, imaging exams, laboratory test data and outcomes. The data collected will be used for educational purposes, AI algorithm development and research studies.

The ACR is working with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to allow clinicians to earn credit under the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) by contributing data to the CIRR. Sites that contribute data will have access to their data and will be eligible to request data for other COVID-19 research projects, subject to IRB approval and the oversight of the CIRR Steering Committee.

CIRR is a cooperative effort of the ACR Center for Research and Innovation™ and the ACR Data Science Institute®.

Data collection for CIRR is now live.
