The ACR Appropriateness Criteria© are evidence-based guidelines to assist referring physicians and other providers in making the most appropriate imaging or treatment decision for a specific clinical condition. By employing these guidelines, providers enhance quality of care and contribute to the most efficacious use of radiology.

The guidelines are developed by expert panels in diagnostic imaging, interventional radiology, and radiation oncology. Each panel includes leaders in radiology and other specialties. There are more than 175 topics with over 850 variants in the March 2011 version. Click here for more information regarding how the ACR derives the Appropriateness Criteria.
