The Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) is the national specialty society for radiologists in Canada. We are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of care, promoting patient safety and helping radiologists contribute to the very best health care for patients.
The CAR is particularly active on three fronts:
We work with governments, health professionals and technology leaders to make optimal use of diagnostic imaging. Our goal is to ensure the right tests are performed the right way and interpreted the right way.
We also serve as the voice of Canadian radiology so that governments, the public and news media are fully informed about the benefits and risks of diagnostic imaging, the challenges we face and the solutions we propose.
We create, accredit and promote opportunities for continuing medical education and research, helping radiologists stay at the leading edge of diagnostic imaging health care.
