Study Finds Most Radiologists Meet ACR Recommendations, But Many Have Higher AIRs Than Recommended

HealthImaging (12/7, Pearson) reports on a study published online in Radiology finding that “most radiologists performing digital screening mammography in US community practice are meeting or exceeding most of the American College of Radiology’s performance recommendations,” yet “almost half have higher abnormal interpretation rates (AIRs) than established benchmarks and ACR’s recommendations on that metric.” The study was based on data from “nearly 1.7 million digital screening mammograms of 792,808 women between 2007 and 2013.”
