New Standards Applicable to Intracranial Cerebrovascular Testing Only Effective May 15, 2022

As an accreditation organization, IAC Vascular Testing is committed to maintaining a program that balances the changing needs of both the vascular testing community and the general public by influencing the quality of patient care provided. The IAC Standards and Guidelines for Vascular Testing Accreditation are the most important component of that commitment. Composed by physicians 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 Vascular Testing Board of Directors preliminarily approved the proposed Standards which were recently posted to the IAC Vascular Testing website for a 60-day public comment period.

The published revisions are only applicable to Section 2B: Intracranial Cerebrovascular TestingNo other revisions to additional sections of the Standards were changed at this time.
