Joint SNMMI/ACR Credentialing Statement Issued for PET/MRI of the Body

May 15, 2017

The American College of Radiology (ACR) and SNMMI have issued a joint credentialing statement for physicians responsible for the oversight and interpretation of PET/MRI examinations of the body (head and neck, chest, abdomen, pelvis, skeleton, extremities). It is now available in The Journal of Nuclear Medicine (JNM) online and will be published in the July issue. The statement is intended to guide credentialing bodies that privilege physicians to oversee the performance of PET/MRI, and participate in the interpretation of PET/MR images, in adult and pediatric patients.

This is the second in a planned series of credentialing documents covering all organ systems and clinical applications. The first, on PET/MRI of the brain, was published in 2015.
