Imaging Accreditation Protocol

The Imaging Accreditation Protocol promotes compliance with nationally recognized quality and safety standards.

Accreditation is required for the following Advanced Imaging Studies:

  • CT scan
  • Echocardiography
  • MRI
  • Nuclear Medicine / Cardiology
  • PET scan

If you fail to obtain accreditation, your reimbursement may be affected. We may do an administrative claim reimbursement reduction for global and technical service claims.
