The Image Gently Alliance Will Meet at RSNA

The Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging (the Image Gently Alliance) will meet at the Radiological Society of North America annual meeting (RSNA 2014) in Chicago on Monday, 1 December, 11:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. (CST). The meeting room will be listed in the program.

The Image Gently Alliance will also host a booth at RSNA 2014 and is calling for volunteers to help staff the booth. Anyone attending RSNA who has an hour or two to spare during the exhibition hours should contact Image Gently Administrative Director Shaniece Rigans, 703-476-3235.

The mission of the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging is to improve the safety and effectiveness of the imaging care of children worldwide. This is achieved through increased awareness of, education about, and advocacy on the need for the appropriate examination and amount of radiation dose when imaging children. The ultimate goal of the Image Gently Alliance is to change practice locally to improve the health and safety of the child. The Image Gently website provides information for parents and medical professionals (now including dental professionals).
