“I really admire the Image Gently program and what you are trying to do for parents and children…It took me by complete shock when I found out that a barium enema even used radiation…This goes to show exactly how BIG the gap is between healthcare and parents with radiation.” TB 12.15.18
The mission of the Image Gently Alliance is, through advocacy, to improve safe and effective imaging care of children worldwide.
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
The SPR has arranged for Image Gently donations to be made through their secure website system. Support the Image Gently Campaign here!
