On Aug. 28, the ABR announced that VIR certificate holders must choose between converting their DR and VIR certificates to the new Interventional Radiology/Diagnostic Radiology (IR/DR) certificate or opting out and retaining only their DR certificate. This webinar, originally presented September 11, 2017, includes a brief presentation by the ABR providing additional details about the new IR/DR certification, including the certificate conversion process and MOC participation requirements, followed by Q&A.
The American College of Radiology (ACR) hosted a webinar on Sept. 22 to answer questions about the upcoming ABR certification changes. Click here to watch.
