What is Image Gently?
The Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging, also known as the Image Gently SM alliance, was launched in 2007 to increase awareness and provide education about radiation safety in pediatric imaging. It is a collaborative effort of the Society of Pediatric Radiology (SPR), the ACR, the AAPM, and the ASRT. The Image Gently SM website ( http://www.imagegently.org ) provides resources for parents, imaging technologists, physicists, radiologists, and referring providers. It also offers information about different imaging modalities and particular considerations when imaging children of different ages.
