February 10, 2016 — The American College of Radiology’s ACR 2016 clinical research sessions provide critical skills for radiology professionals to contribute to — and inform — new coverage decisions in value-based patient care.

Medical imaging and radiation oncology research, which is crucial for the development of innovative treatment and diagnostics, will continue to influence the future of patient care,” said Cheri Canon, M.D., FACR, chair of the ACR 2016 Program Committee. “While there’s uncertainty over new payment models and the compensation changes occurring for doctors and practice facilities, radiology professionals will learn how their practices can directly benefit from participation in research projects to optimize patient-centered outcomes,” she added.

The Crossroads of Radiology clinical research sessions are listed below:

  • From Evidence to Reimbursement;
  • Imaging Research Informing the Future of Healthcare;
  • Update on Imaging of Chronic Liver Disease (developed in conjunction with the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound)
  • Update on Thyroid Nodules and Other Cervical Pathology: Heading Toward Consensus; (developed in conjunction with the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound);
  • Clinical Research Participation Across the Practice Spectrum: Pragmatic Approaches; and
  • Publishing and Disseminating Your Research.

The ACR's annual all-member meeting will be held May 15–19 in Washington, D.C.
