Comprehensive accreditation services


On October 1, 2020, RadSite is implementing the next version of its MIPPA Accreditation Program (MAP) Standards, version 3.1, which will add a number of specialty modules.

Currently, RadSite covers advanced diagnostic imaging modalities including CT, MRI, and Nuclear Medicine (such as PET and SPECT) imaging exams. RadSite MIPPA Accreditation Programs (MAP) are:

  • Computed Tomography (CT) MAP, version 3.1

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) MAP, version 3.1

  • Nuclear Medicine (NucMed) MAP, version 3.1

The NucMed MAP covers the following types of advanced diagnostic imaging modalities:

  • Planar / Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT)

  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and PET/CT

Each applicant will qualify for a general accreditation seal for each ADI modality. In addition, each imaging provider may apply for and be recognized for specific clinical subspecialty imaging areas under MAP Standards version 3.1.

The following specialty modules will be covered going forward:

What is MIPPA?

The Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) of 2008 requires all providers who bill CMS for advanced diagnostic imaging services under Part B of the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule to have been accredited by January 1, 2012, in order to continue to receive reimbursement for their services. The ADI modalities covered under MIPPA are CT, MRI, PET, and SPECT.
