Call for Translations: Over the past few years, the Image Gently Alliance has developed 8 posters representing various campaigns, which have been presented at the European Congress of Radiology and a variety of other venues. Originally developed in English, these posters have presented various aspects of pediatric imaging upon which Image Gently has provided guidance and information. Through this advocacy, the Alliance mission is to improve safe and effective imaging care of children worldwide. Thus, we are putting out this call for translations. The Alliance would appreciate translation into any language understood by a good number of individuals interested in the material including but not limited to Arabic, Bengali, traditional Chinese, French, and Hindi. The posters have already been or are currently in the process of being translated into Portuguese, Russian, Romanian, Simple Chinese, Farsi, and Spanish. Alliance educational materials are always free and available for use by individuals or local organizations. Those interested in assisting the Alliance in this effort, especially as organizational or societal liaisons (and translations then can be cobranded) should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. One campaign poster shown as an example. To view more, visit the Posters Page.
Temporarily Under Construction
A Canada Safe Imaging has been formed to address this need for a national strategy and action plan as it relates to radiation safety for medical imaging care in Canada.
EuroSafe Imaging is the European Society of Radiology’s latest flagship initiative to promote quality and safety in medical imaging. The mission of EuroSafe Imaging is to support and strengthen medical radiation protection across Europe following a holistic, inclusive approach.
The mission of LatinSafe is to promote through education a safe practice of diagnostic imaging in Latin America with emphasis in radioprotection of patients, and to contribute to enhance the awareness of its importance among radiologists, technicians, and other professionals involved in radiology, referring physicians, patients and parents and in the entire community.
