All of us at WPC are excited to have become the newest member of the National Coalition for Quality Diagnostic Imaging Services (NCQDIS). NCQDIS is an industry group that monitors regulatory developments that can affect industry standards; preserves and enhances reimbursement where appropriate as the industry advocate on regulatory and legislative issues; and educates third-party payers about the importance of keeping radiologists in charge of radiology to ensure quality patient care. NCQDIS represents more than 2,400 outpatient diagnostic imaging centers and departments in the United States. Through affiliated professional societies, the NCQDIS message reaches over 150,000 centers and professionals involved in the provision of diagnostic imaging services. We are thrilled and honored to have been invited to join the Coalition as its only diagnostic physics service member and look forward to making substantive contributions to its efforts.
