Newswise — Reston, VA — With Engage, a new member benefit, American College of Radiology (ACR) members gain a powerful resource to network with 37,000 radiology colleagues, exchange knowledge and share solutions.

Engage, which automatically enrolls all ACR members today, is a cloud-based, private online community. Numerous communities have been identified for launch, including an open forum for general discussion, forums for residents and fellows and Senior and/or Retired Section members and numerous specialty communities (for example, body imaging; breast imaging; general, small and rural practice; interventional and cardiovascular imaging; medical physics; neuroradiology; nuclear medicine and molecular imaging; pediatric radiology; radiation oncology; and ultrasound).

“Engage represents a unique opportunity for ACR members to interact with each other to share information and solve practical problems. Members will be able to connect in a variety of self-selected open communities, while closed communities will facilitate the work of our commissions and committees,” said ACR Chief Executive Officer William T. Thorwarth Jr., MD, FACR.

ACR members will receive emails with subscription notifications. In addition to being able to chat with colleagues, members will be able to participate in discussions with subject matter experts; access a library of resources specific to communities; and post images, videos and documents to share with others.

Engage access is tied to ACR membership. Members will be able to join communities, update individual profiles and manage the frequency of community notifications. To learn more and join the discussion, visit the Engage website.
