Why Join the ACR
The young radiologist just starting practice faces a bewildering array of state and national medical and radiological societies vying for his/her limited financial resources/potential dues. Filled with lots of esoteric knowledge and dozens of differential diagnoses (from studying for the boards), the new radiologist usually has little experience with the practice of medicine and no idea what individual societies do. Which ones to chose to join and why?
The established radiologist on the other hand often encounters the same dilemma for different reasons. Having joined multiple societies in an initial rush of enthusiasm, economic realities set in and he/she faces the difficult choice of pairing down the number to a manageable level.

The purpose of this section therefore is to extol the virtues of membership in the ACR, which mirrors the efforts of the RSNJ on the national level, and therefore is the single most important radiological society at the national level. Radiologists should bookmark their website at www.acr.org and visit this valuable resource frequently.
