The first person to register the PET Facility will automatically become the IDEAS PET Facility Administrator and will add all others (site staff and physicians) to the practice. Please Note: There is only ONE PET Facility Administrator per site.

Step 1: Create ACR ID and Register Site

****Do NOT register the physician for an ACR ID until you have completely registered the PET Facility. This will result in duplicate registrations!

PLEASE NOTE: The password must contain more than 10 characters and contain at 3 of following items: uppercase letter, lowercase letter, number, or symbol.


Step 2: PET Facility Accreditation

Free-standing PET facilities that wish to participate in the IDEAS Study must be accredited for PET brain imaging by one of the following bodies:

PET facilities located in hospitals with Medicare-approved hospital accreditation such as the Joint Commission (with or without additional accreditation by ACR, IAC, or RadSite) also are eligible.


Step 3: PET Facility MOU and BAA


Step 4: Site User: Account Activation

Link #1

This link contains programming code that connects a user with an existing ACR ID to an IDEAS site. This allows the radiologists to register to use a single sign on and interpret amyloid scans at multiple locations. See link #1 text below:
If you have been given your ACR ID (username) by an ACR staff member or your PET Facility Administrator and you are being added to an existing, registered site, you should click on this link which is only active for 10 days:

Link #2

Users who do not have an ACR ID should select this link as it allows the user to create an ACR ID. See link #2 text below If you or your site has never registered for the IDEAS study and wish to register your site for the study, you must first create an ACR ID by clicking on this link:

*****Once the email is received containing the ACR ID and temporary password, the user should return to the IDEAS invitation email and select link #1. This will connect the user to the site.


Step 5: TRIAD Installation

The PET images will be collected for this study via TRIAD, a proprietary software package which de-identifies images at a site and enable transmission via the Internet. The images will be archived at the ACRIN Core Lab. Please visit the TRIAD page for image collection instructions.
