ACR Accreditation

Healthcare facilities often seek ACR accreditation in many modalities. The process of accreditation can be complicated and time consuming and involves the medical physicist in both testing and quality control. Other areas where the medical physicist can be helpful is in acquiring phantom images for submission to the ACR and developing a quality assurance program.

Our medical physicists meet all the qualifications for ACR accreditation in all modalities and can provide guidance and expertise in ACR application preparation and submission.
