On July 1, 2015 the Joint Commission implemented revised requirements for diagnostic imaging services. These revised regulations now include phantom-based imaging performance assessments for PET scanners.
To help PET imaging sites operating under Joint Commission accreditation demonstrate compliance with these new imaging requirements, SNMMI has initiated a new Joint Commission PET scanner compliance program.
The SNMMI Joint Commission PET Scanner Compliance Program is designed to help your site meet these new requirements, while generating clinically meaningful scanner performance data to help your sites monitor scanner performance over time and optimize your clinical image quality.
CTN has developed an anthropomorphic oncology phantom with 12 spheres ranging in size from 7mm to 37mm. The phantom is imaged at a 4:1 sphere-to-background ratio.
