ACR appropriateness criteria
The ACR Appropriateness Criteria® (AC) are evidence-based guidelines to assist referring physicians and other providers in making the most appropriate imaging or treatment decision for a specific clinical condition. Employing these guidelines helps providers enhance quality of care and contribute to the most efficacious use of radiology. More than 200 volunteer physicians — including representatives from 20 medical specialty organizations — participate in the ACR AC expert panels, developing and updating these transparent guidelines. As a recognized national source for appropriate imaging, the ACR AC is available for review and research by all interested individuals. For Basic Access and Advanced Search options, please click on each color link.
Just as we perform our due dilligence to provide the appropriate directed physical examination before procedures, we also take the responsibilty to followup our patients afterwards. We will work closely with you to assess the patient’s appropriateness for discharge, and determine the course of followup if needed. We also provide followup phone calls once the patients are discharged, and help to answer any questions they may have.
The Interventional Radiology services provided at Radiology Associates are extensive, and staffed by all fellowship trained, board certified subspecialists. All requests for biopsy and Interventional Radiological procedures are reviewed prior to these procedures. These requests can be initiated by physician chart order, or via direct contact with one of our Physician colleagues.
