    • On October 11, 2011, by oakgall - Consistency, Accuracy, Responsibility, and Excellence in Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy Act is associated with a disturbing pattern in legislation support and political donations and independent expenditures by the American College of Radiology Association. An inquiry into the ethical implications of these payments should take place before any floor vote.
