As an accreditation organization, IAC CT is committed to maintaining a program that balances the changing needs of both the CT community and the general public by influencing the quality of patient care provided. The IAC Standards and Guidelines for CT Testing Accreditation are the most important component of that commitment. Composed by physicians, physicists and technologists from the IAC sponsoring organizations, the Standards are reviewed periodically by the Board of Directors and revised as needed.
As a component of the accreditation process, the IAC CT Board of Directors preliminarily approved the proposed Standards which were recently posted to the IAC CT website for a 60-day public comment period.
