Image Wisely

Part of the Medical Radiology book series (MEDRAD)


The American College of Radiology and the Radiological Society of North America formed the joint task force on adult radiation protection to address concerns about the surge of public exposure to ionizing radiation from medical imaging. The joint task force collaborated with the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and the American Society of Radiologic Technologists to create the Image Wisely campaign with the objective of lowering the amount of radiation used in medically necessary imaging studies and eliminating unnecessary procedures. Image Wisely offers resources and information to radiologists, medical physicists, other imaging practitioners, and patients.
