ACR–ASNR–SPR Practice Paramerer for the Performance and Interpretation of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the Brain


Tehran University of Medical Sciences



The American College of Radiology is the principal organization of radiologists, radiation oncologists, and clinical medical Physicists.
The American College of Radiology will periodically define new practice parameters and technical standards for radiologic practice to help advance the science of radiology and to improve the quality of service to patients.
Existing practice parameters and technical standards will be reviewed for revision or renewal, as appropriate, on their fifth anniversary or sooner, if indicated.
ACR Practice Parameters and Technical Standards promote the safe and effective use of diagnostic and therapeutic radiology by describing specific training, skills and techniques. The goal is to narrow the variability among radiology practices and provide guidance to achieve quality in radiology.
ACR ACCREDITATION: The Gold Standard in Medical Imaging
ACR Accreditation is a valuable tool for maintaining excellence in everything from operations to patient care.
ACR Accreditation helps assure your patients that you provide the highest level of image quality and safety by documenting that your facility meets requirements for equipment, medical personnel and quality assurance.
Goals of the ACR MRI Accreditation Program are to set quality standards for “best practice” and to help continuously improve the quality of patient care. Primary components of the ACR program are the evaluation of:

Qualifications of all personnel (Physicians, Physicists and Technologists)
Equipment performance
Effectiveness of quality control measures
Quality of clinical images
