About Image Gently

The Image Gently Alliance is a coalition of health care organizations dedicated to providing safe, high quality pediatric imaging worldwide. The primary objective of the Alliance is to raise awareness in the imaging community of the need to adjust radiation dose when imaging children.

“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

  • Although [there are] a seemingly exhaustive supply of internet resources, a rare few are meaningful. I am very thankful for both [Image Gently and the World Health Organization for Communication Risks in Imaging] websites as they are stand-alones for being user-friendly and deployable…thus, I share them with my students!
