PQRS Group Measures:

#359 Optimizing Patient Exposure to Ionizing Radiation: Utilization of a Standardized Nomenclature for Computed
Tomography (CT) Imaging Description
#360 Optimizing Patient Exposure to Ionizing Radiation: Count of Potential High Dose Radiation Imaging Studies:
Computed Tomography (CT) and Cardiac Nuclear Medicine Studies
#361 Optimizing Patient Exposure to Ionizing Radiation: Reporting to a Radiation Dose Index Registry
#362 Optimizing Patient Exposure to Ionizing Radiation: Computed Tomography (CT) Images Available for
Patient Follow-up and Comparison Purposes
#363 Optimizing Patient Exposure to Ionizing Radiation: Search for Prior Computed Tomography (CT) Studies
Through a Secure, Authorized, Media-Free, Shared Archive
#364 Optimizing Patient Exposure to Ionizing Radiation: Appropriateness: Follow-up CT Imaging for Incidentally
Detected Pulmonary Nodules According to Recommended Guidelines

Measure #364 only needs to be reported on patients 18 years and older when the patient has a procedure performed specific to the following CPT procedure codes:

2016 Optimizing Patient Exposure to Ionizing Radiation (OPEIR)

Register now with MDinteractive, report on all applicable measures described above for a minimum of 20 unique patients (11 of which must be Part B Fee-For-Service patients) and avoid the 4% penalty.

An answer of "Not Done" on all patients on one measure will result in a performance rate of 0% and the provider will NOT get the PQRS incentive.
