Image Wisely Campaign Launched

Image Wisely is a campaign to encourage imaging providers to
  • Optimize imaging examinations to use only the radiation necessary to produce diagnostic quality images
  • Convey messages to the imaging team to ensure that the facility optimizes its use of radiation when imaging patients
  • Communicate optimal patient imaging strategies to referring physicians, and be available for consultation
  • Routinely review imaging protocols to ensure the use of the least amount of radiation necessary to acquire a diagnostic quality image for each exam
Image Wisely is a collaborative initiative of the ACR, RSNA, ASRT and AAPM
