 Practice Quality Improvement (PQI) Project: 

This PQI module will capture how your practice performs CT scans in children, and allows you to compare your practice to “safe practice” in the literature and ACR guidelines. A survey tool allows you to compare your practice to others who have taken the module.The survey tool is not a scientific survey or registry.
PLEASE NOTE that practice improvement should be tailored to your practice! The practice interventions suggested in this module and practice tools provided are samples for you to use or modify as appropriate.
They are not intended to be standards. This PQI program has been approved for the American Board of Radiology Maintenance of Certification Part IV.
At the conclusion of this module, you will be asked to provide non-identifying demographic data. You will also be asked to provide feedback to the authors regarding the educational content and presentation of this module for the purpose of improving this on-line learning tool.  This information may be used for scientific research.  By entering data in the survey, you agree to participate.
