PET/MR Accreditation

In 2021 EARL released a 68Ga PET/CT accreditation. Based on previous studies1 this accreditation is derived from 18F standards 2, which is a prerequisite for 68Ga PET/CT accreditation. All 68Ga reconstructions for quantification when referring to EARL accreditation should be done using the approved parameters for 18F standards 2 accreditation1. As of July 2022 this accreditation is extended to PET/MR scanners as well.
