Campaign Overview

The Campaign Overview 

  • The Alliance goal is to change practice by raising awareness of the opportunities to lower radiation dose in the imaging of children.  
  • The Alliance strategy is straightforward: by 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 Image Gently Alliance 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 Campaigns and other efforts of the Image Gently Alliance rely on the generous donation of resources from the four founding organizations (Society for Pediatric Radiology, American College of Radiology, American Society for Radiologic Technologists, and the American Association of Physicists in Medicine), as well as all Alliance Organizations, and other supporters. The leadership of the Image Gently Alliance also gratefully acknowledges the value of industry partnerships: the sharing of time, talent and expertise committed to excellence in imaging of children, a foundation of the mission of the Alliance. These partnerships have afforded meetings and other Alliance activities, such as through an initial unrestricted educational grant from GE Healthcare made in 2007 at the inception of the Alliance.

The Image Gently Alliance acknowledges all previous contributions with gratitude, but does not accept commercial financial donations at this time. However, we look forward to continued partnership in sharing insights and vision towards the safe imaging of children everywhere.
