Campaign Overview

The Campaign Overview 

  • The Alliance goal is to change practice: to raise awareness of the opportunities to lower radiation dose in the imaging of children.  
  • The Alliance strategy is straightforward - providing information and free educational materials  to every member of the care team.  
    • If you have information that would be of value, provide it here. This is a team effort.  

Campaign Timeline and Leadership

  • The Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging began as a committee within the Society for Pediatric Radiology in late 2006.
  • In 2007, the SPR leadership reached out to friends and colleagues in sister societies representing the key members of the imaging team, ACR, ASRT and AAPM, to form "the Writers Group." These organizations developed the concept of the Alliance and their representatives developed the Image Gently campaign in the summer of 2007.

The Image Gently Campaign and the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging rely on the generous donations of resources from the founding organizations (Society for Pediatric Radiology, American College of Radiology,  American Society for Radiologic Technologists, and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine), all Alliance Organizations, supporters, and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. The leadership gratefully acknowledges the time, talent, and expertise from representatives of GE Healthcare, Phillips Healthcare, Toshiba America, and Siemens Medical Systems who are committed to improving healthcare for children through activities related to this campaign.

The Alliance is grateful for the unrestricted educational grant from GE Healthcare made in 2007.  The campaign does not accept corporate financial donations at this time.
