The American College of Radiology (ACR) has added seven new and 19 revised topics to its ACR Appropriateness Criteria guidelines.

The seven new topics are as follows:

  • Acute mental status change, delirium, and new onset psychosis
  • Nonatherosclerotic peripheral arterial disease
  • Scoliosis in a child
  • Suspected appendicitis in a child
  • Suspected spine trauma in a child
  • Thyroid disease

Each subject features a narrative, an evidence table, and a literature search summary. In addition, there is an appendix with an evidence assessment for all recommendations.

The entire ACR Appropriateness Criteria list now includes 186 diagnostic imaging and interventional radiology topics with 914 clinical variants covering more than 1,600 clinical scenarios.
