ACR appropriateness criteria now available

New radiology guidelines developed with help of AAOS members

AAOS members were instrumental in developing the latest version of the American College of Radiography’s (ACR) Appropriateness Criteria (AC) that was released Sept. 30, 2009. These evidence-based guidelines help physicians and other providers make the most appropriate imaging or treatment decision for a given clinical condition.

Ian Blair Fries, MD, and William Kenneth Payne III, MD, participated on the musculoskeletal imaging panel; Peter D. Pizzutillo, MD, was on the pediatric imaging panel; and Alan W. Yasko, MD, served on the radiation oncology bone metastases panel.
