Joint Commission

Recently, The Joint Commission has revised its requirements for Diagnostic Imaging Services that include Computerized Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single Photon Emission Tomography (SPECT). They now require annual testing that falls closely in line with the American College of Radiology (ACR) testing. "At least annually, a Diagnostic Medical Physicist conducts a performance evaluation of all.....imaging equipment". Please check the Revised Requirements for each of the imaging modalities at your locations as there are variations to each portion for that modality.
