Congratulations to Dr. Ray Tan, MD, MSHPM for being selected to serve as an inaugural member of the Advisory Committee for the Prostate MR Image Quality Improvement Collaborative, one of four collaboratives that make up the newly-formed American College of Radiology Learning Network.
The Prostate MR Image Quality Improvement Collaborative has been tasked with improving image quality on prostate MR by increasing the consistent use of appropriate MR equipment, imaging protocols, and operator skill.
As a member of the Advisory Committee, Dr. Tan will represent the urologist perspective and serve as a link to the American Urological Association’s science and quality initiatives by sharing his clinical expertise and advising on strategies to promote the dissemination and implementation of efforts to improve the quality of Prostate MR to the community-at-large.
“It’s an honor to join this stellar team – looking forward to sharing my experience and expertise to help make prostate MRI more accessible and higher quality for patients in need.”

About the American College of Radiology Learning Network.
The ACR Learning Network was funded by an ACR grant from the Diagnostic Excellence Initiative of the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation to improve diagnostic imaging through a learning health systems approach. With a focus on cancer, the ACR Learning Network simultaneously develops performance measures and validated improvement strategies at multiple local sites, followed by broad dissemination of both measures and improvement strategies.
The ACR Learning Network has launched four initial individual Improvement Collaboratives, addressing four important areas of performance in cancer diagnosis. As a cohesive learning network, this “collaborative of collaboratives” will set the stage for the ACR Learning Network to facilitate diagnostic excellence at local sites.
