CMS recently instituted a new rule pertaining to “Excessive Radiation Dose or Inadequate Image Quality for Diagnostic Computed Tomography (CT) in Adults.” Reviewing the new rule, practitioners have found many ambiguities the interpretations to which can significantly impact its implementation. To help practitioners and implementers of the new rule, the AAPM recently commissioned an intersocietal panel of experienced, practical, and committed experts in CT radiation dose, image quality, and patient care including industry representatives, academics, and clinical practitioners from professional societies. The panel consolidated a list of ambiguities within the current CMS rule and took upon itself to provide educated recommendations for each. This presentation offers a summary of the deliberations of this effort, and puts that into a cohesive strategy (grounded by the consensus statement from a recent Quality Measures Roundtable representing a broad spectrum of stakeholders) by which the quality, safety, and consistency of medical CT imaging can be assured.

Webinar attendees will:

  1. Understand the goal of the new CMS rule on Excessive Radiation Dose or Inadequate Image Quality.
  2. Understand the critical ambiguities in the implementation of the new rule and the means and limitations by which such ambiguities can be mitigated.
