The Americal College of Radiology introduced an accreditation program for Computed Tomography (CT) in 2002. The CT accreditation application requires the participation of a qualified medical physicist (with specific credentials) in order to submit appropriate phantom images and radiation dose measurements for CT scanners. Examples of acceptable CT accreditation phantom images will be presented, along with examples of the more commonly made mistakes. A brief review of the dosimetry procedures to follow, and pitfalls to avoid, will also be covered. Special attention will be directed toward the accreditation process for multi‐slice CT scanners.
