The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) is a radiology society in the United States. It was founded in 1900, in the early days of x-ray and radiation study.

Headquartered in Leesburg, Virginia, the society publishes a monthly peer-reviewed journal: American Journal of Roentgenology (previously American Journal of Radiology), providing a forum for advances in radiology and related fields. It provides scholarships, and presents awards.[1]

Its educational programs include seminars and a program of continuing education for radiologic technologists.[2]

Its 9th meeting, in 1908, was held in New York City. There, it announced that there was "no excuse whatever" for anyone being injured during medical X-rays, which "could be taken in a fraction of a second".[3]
