    This scientific session will focus on the feasibility of using Web services to deliver just-in-time American College of Radiology (ACR) Appropriateness Criteria to provide decision support when diagnostic imaging procedures are being ordered.

    Dr. Chris Sistrom, an associate professor and the vice chair of the University of Florida College of Medicine Department of Radiology, will discuss the development and testing of a prototype system.

    "Appropriateness criteria for diagnostic imaging exist in various formats, yet none are directly usable in computerized physician order-entry [CPOE] systems for decision support," he explained.

    Sistrom and colleagues encoded the ACR's appropriateness criteria with tags to represent diagnostic imaging procedures and clinical scenarios. These formed the foundation of a prototype Web service enabling users to select modalities, body areas, topics, and clinical scenarios on an order-entry form. Once activated, a list of imaging procedures labeled with appropriateness scores is returned to the physician completing the form.

    The prototype is currently being tested at several health centers.
