Advanced Imaging Accreditation Application & Criteria Now Available
January 31st, 2012
In order for oral and maxillofacial surgeons to achieve accreditation for advanced imaging services, the AAOMS recently became a sponsoring organization of the Computed Tomography (CT) division of the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). The AAOMS helped develop the IAC standards and the corresponding application for the dental practice and/or dental specialty practice performing diagnostic and/or treatment planning maxillofacial CT examinations using a cone beam CT system. Such accreditation will be necessary in order to receive Medicare and some private payer reimbursement for utilizing these services. If you are using cone beam CT scanners, visit the ICACTL website for dental accreditation or call the IAC at 800/838-2110 to obtain the accreditation standards and application.
