Maintenance of Certification

MOC > Diagnostic Radiology


Diagnostic Radiology and Its Subspecialties




Because Maintenance of Certification requirements and processes for diagnostic radiology and its subspecialties are exactly the same, separate web pages for the subspecialties have been eliminated. The subspecialties include neuroradiology, nuclear radiology, pediatric radiology, and vascular/interventional radiology. If you hold a subspecialty certificate, please refer to the diagnostic radiology web pages for information and requirements



Diplomates who hold TIME-LIMITED certificates, and those with CONTINUOUS certificates issued in 2012 and thereafter (with no "valid-through" dates), are automatically enrolled in the MOC program when they attain initial certification and may start participating immediately. 

Diplomates with a SUBSPECIALTY certificate in neuroradiology, nuclear radiology, pediatric radiology, or vascular/interventional radiology also hold either a time-limited certificate or a continuous certificate issued in 2012 and thereafter. They are automatically enrolled in the MOC program and should start participating immediately.

  • You may fulfill the MOC requirements to maintain your certifications in both diagnostic radiology and a subspecialty with a single MOC program. Two separate MOC efforts are not necessary, and fees remain the same.
  • MOC subspecialty exam dates and locations can be found at

Diplomates who hold LIFETIME certificates must voluntarily enroll in the program to begin the MOC process. Click here for more information.

The ABR believes in the value of Maintenance of Certification. All ABR volunteers, including governors and trustees, participate in MOC.
