The WFPI is a member of the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging and is an active participant in the Image Gently campaign helping to build a framework for addressing international child imaging safety needs. This group will address radiation safety as a priority. In collaboration with other international experts and under Image Gently’s stewardship, this group will aim to:

  • Support Image Gently and the work of other societies and agencies throughout the world in the goal of promoting radiation protection for children worldwide
  • Federate WFPI patient safety experts with Image Gently’s international group to secure Image Gently input into WFPI focus areas such as radiation safety and region-specific recommendations on radiation protection for children.
