The ACCR is a professional association of board-certified chiropractic radiologists. The membership is a diverse group of practitioners with varied interests within radiology and chiropractic practice, but with the common goal of ensuring the safe and effective use of radiologic procedures in healthcare.
Radiology in chiropractic is a referral specialty that provides consultation services at the request of other healthcare practitioners. Chiropractic radiologists recommend, supervise, and interpret traditional radiologic studies, as well as, advanced imaging procedures. These include, but are not limited to, traditional radiography, fluoroscopy, ultrasonography, radioisotope (nuclear) imaging, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. They advise referring practitioners on the necessity and appropriateness of radiologic services and whether to select or avoid certain diagnostic or clinical procedures based on the imaging studies provided. They serve as educators at the graduate and post-graduate levels and conduct research that advances the field of radiology and radiology education.
