Practice Quality Improvement or PQI is one of four components of The American Board of Radiology Maintenance of Certification process. By the beginning of 2008, you must have selected a project that is relevant to your practice, is achievable in a practice setting, produces measurable results that is suitable for repeated measurements, and is able to effect quality improvement.
The former Society of Uroradiology and the American College of Radiology together developed an on-line PQI project that meets the above requirements and has been "Qualified by the American Board of Radiology in meeting the criteria for practice quality improvement (PQI) toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification Program" (as of November 26, 2008).
This project is titled "Intravenous Iodinated Contrast Extravasation during Computerized Tomography". You may participate in the project individually or as part of a group of radiologists. For more information and registration go to the American College of Radiology's National Radiology Data Registry website and click on the ICE icon.
