“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


Image Gently Mission Statement Update 

The mission of the Image Gently Alliance is, through advocacy, to improve safe and effective imaging care of children worldwide.

Campaign Overview

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. 

Great News! 

The SPR has arranged for Image Gently donations to be made through their secure website system.  Support the Image Gently Campaign here!
