Annapolis, MD / May 31, 2023 – RadSite™, a leading accrediting organization promoting performance and quality-based imaging practices, is seeking candidates to serve on its volunteer committees for the 2023-2024 term.

The committee members help ensure that RadSite maintains the highest quality standards and leverages an objective process when making determinations. The committees are as follows:
⦁ The Accreditation Committee oversees RadSite’s accreditation activities for imaging facilities and systems.
⦁ The Advanced Diagnostic Imaging (ADI) Standards Committee develops new quality and performance programs and revises existing standards based on emerging best practices and new regulatory requirements. This Committee supports the standards related to its accreditation programs for CT, MRI, and Nuclear Medicine imaging systems and the new remote imaging technologist accreditation program.
⦁ The Cone Beam CT ADI Standards Committee develops standards for Cone Beam CT imaging systems, covering dental, ENT, maxillofacial, musculoskeletal and neurologic among other specialty areas.

Volunteers from a broad cross-section of the healthcare industry are sought for these committees, including imaging suppliers, health care professionals, consumer representatives, business experts, employer representatives, association executives, and government officials. Committee terms run from July 1 to June 30 annually.

“RadSite’s committee participants support our mission to promote quality and performance-based imaging,” said Garry Carneal, RadSite’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Committee volunteers help ensure that our standards are properly developed and updated, and our accreditation review process is transparent and meaningful. Under RadSite’s governance structure, the Standards Committees approves our accreditation programs, and the Accreditation Committee approves each accreditation applicant. This check and balance system ensures that RadSite is accountable to a wide range of stakeholders and allows staff to leverage key industry thought leaders.”

“A core part of RadSite’s mission is to address emerging issues associated with professional, clinical, and technical imaging requirements, now including the use of biomarkers in the diagnostic process,” said Mark Hiatt, MD, co-chair of RadSite’s Standards Committee. “As a long-standing RadSite volunteer, I appreciate the in-depth effort that RadSite takes to draft and implement meaningful standards.”

Another committee member, Julie O’Brien, BSN, RN, MS, adds “RadSite’s review process is very thorough. The Accreditation Committee carefully reviews each applicant on a de-identified basis to ensure all aspects of the imaging providers’ responses meet the applicable standards. The Committee provides third-party peer review to ensure the evaluation is accurate and helps answer any questions about the review process.”

RadSite has earned the reputation of offering an innovative and cost-effective choice for accreditation. RadSite’s Advanced Diagnostic Imaging (ADI) Accreditation Programs are made up of five different standards covering:
⦁ Computed Tomography (CT) ADI Accreditation, version 3.3
⦁ Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) ADI Accreditation, version 3.3
⦁ Nuclear Medicine ADI Accreditation, version 3.3
⦁ Planar/Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT)
⦁ Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and PET/CT
⦁ Dental Cone Beam CT ADI Accreditation, version 1.2
⦁ Medical Cone Beam CT ADI Accreditation, version 1.2.

RadSite also is developing an accreditation module that will help ensure quality-based imaging when facilities use remote technologists for MRI and CT.
