Accreditation by the American College of Radiology assesses the overall quality of a practice, including personnel, equipment, quality assurance activities and ultimately the quality of patient care. The purpose of these programs is to set quality standards for practices and help them continuously improve the quality of care they provide to their patients. ACR accreditation programs provide an objective, peer reviewed assessment of facilities through evaluation of personnel qualifications, equipment requirements, quality assurance and quality control procedures, and evaluation of clinical and phantom image quality.
