Appropriate Imaging Lectures

Importance of imaging appropriateness guidelines

Imaging tests are essential for diagnosis and to optimally guide patient management. However, best-practice ordering requires an understanding the American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria®. Reports that most 3rd year medical students are unaware of ACR Appropriateness Criteria® reveal a critical deficiency in medical school education. Additionally, a recent review reveals the need to increase use of ACR AC® in practice. As such, we created this free online resource to educate medical students, house staff and practicing providers about imaging appropriateness and ACR Appropriateness Criteria®, through a series of brief, targeted lectures & quizzes
