The ACR or American College of Radiology consists of over 32,000 members. This is made up by radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical physicists, interventional radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians. The purpose of the ACR is to make imaging safe and accessible to patients.
The mission of the ACR is to continually advance the science of radiology; including interventional and nuclear medicine modalities, radiation oncology, and medical physics. This is all done to improve patient care and continually educate fellow medical professionals on the future of radiology.
The radiologists at Diversified Radiology of Colorado are adamant about only reading studies performed at facilities accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Doing so ensures that the imaging techniques meet or exceed quality assurance and safety guidelines. Why is this important? More on that next week……………….
