The American Board of Radiology (ABR) has qualified a new free program on quality improvement in pediatric CT as fulfilling the ABR's maintenance of certification (MOC) requirements for diagnostic radiologists.

The ABR said that the course, titled Image Gently: Practice Quality Improvement (PQI) in Computed Tomography (CT) Scans in Children, fulfills part IV of the Assessment of Performance in Practice section of the MOC requirements.

The program was authored by Dr. Marilyn Goske, chair of the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging, and co-authors at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, with funding from the Society for Pediatric Radiology's Research and Education Foundation.

The online learning module will enable radiologists to assess their current pediatric CT practice and develop and implement a quality improvement program based on the scientific evidence provided within the module.
