CDS R-SCAN Registry

The CDS R-SCAN Registry, now in pilot phase, is the newest registry under the umbrella of the American College of Radiology’s National Radiology Data Registry. The CDS R-SCAN Registry provides access to a subset of a facility’s imaging clinical decision support (CDS) data. Currently, participation is available for facilities that have CareSelect™ Imaging/ACR Select provided by the National Decision Support Company (NDSC).

In combination with the R-SCAN program, the CDS registry is a mechanism for radiologists and referring clinicians to collaborate on improving the ordering of imaging exams that add value to patient care. By reviewing CDS R-SCAN Registry reports, imaging areas that could benefit from educational intervention can easily be identified. Additional benefits include:

  • Engagement of referring physicians in a targeted quality initiative using CDS to demonstrate how consultation of appropriate use criteria demonstrates improvements made in the ordering of imaging exams
  • Access to reports that provide quantitative data about improvements achieved and track that achievements are maintained over time
  • Fulfilment of “Improvement Activity” credit requirements for practices participating in the MIPS track of the CMS Quality Payment Program
  • Access to an archive of educational material for each R-SCAN topic including activities that award CME and provide hands on experience with clinical decision support


The CDS R-SCAN Registry reports can provide feedback information on the following:

  • R-SCAN topics
  • Imaging clinical indications
  • Ordering departments, practices, or groups along with a breakdown of the respective number of cases ordered
  • Date range
