The Nuclear Medicine Accreditation Program involves the acquisition of clinical and phantom images and corresponding data for each unit. All providers that bill for nuclear medicine and PET under part B of the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule must be accredited in order to receive technical component reimbursement from Medicare.

Important Announcements

Coming Soon! New and Improved Accreditation System.

To our ACR 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.

To better assist sites with image requirements, we have included a NM/PET Clinical Image Atlas and NM/PET Phantom Image Atlas located in the NM QC and Testing section below. These contain example images and tips to help sites reduce errors in testing packet submissions. 

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:
