To our ACR Accredited Facilities,

In this unprecedented time, we want to make sure you know that the ACR is working hard to keep business as usual and be available and provide support to our accredited facilities. We recognize that there will be uncertainty of patient volumes, limited resources, limitations on physics support etc. that may affect the ability to meet accreditation deadlines and we will provide as much flexibility on accreditation processes as possible.  Thank you for all of your hard work and providing the safest care possible to your patients.

Annual Medical Physicist Equipment Surveys for Accreditation:

In response to increasing limitations and restrictions of physicist access to imaging facilities due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the ACR will extend the annual medical physicist equipment survey accreditation requirement to a 16-month window from date of last equipment evaluation. Facilities needing a longer extension and those who are unable to obtain physics testing or acceptance testing on new units are asked to contact the ACR for further guidance.

Please visit the ACR COVID-19 Radiology-Specific Resources page.

The ACR Accreditation team recently unveiled a new customer support platform to enhance the accreditation experience. With this new user-friendly system, ACR accreditation customers have a single place where they can access all of the accreditation resources they need, plus a helpdesk to submit queries and support requests. The ACR Accreditation Support solution offers these advantages:

Declaration of Material Change MR phantom: Due to inability to obtain previously used material, JM Specialty Parts, the designated ACR MR phantom vendor, has begun using a different material for the Slice 5 insert. Although the insert design and material have changed, there is no impact on the current scanning requirements. The MR physics subcommittee tested and approved the material. It will be used in the manufacture of all new phantoms. If you possess a phantom with the old slice 5 insert, it is acceptable to use.
