As imaging professionals, we play a unique role in patient care. We must put radiation safety at the forefront of our work. And whether you’re a diagnostic or interventional radiologist, radiation oncologist, medical physicist or other imaging practitioner, you can make the commitment to put your patients’ safety, health and welfare first and Image Wisely® is here to support you in doing so.

Diana Litmanovich, MD

A joint initiative of the ACR, RSNA, American Society of Radiological Technologists and American Association of Physicists in Medicine, Image Wisely aims to optimize the use of radiation in medically necessary imaging studies and eliminate unnecessary procedures. We are committed to ensuring the highest standard of patient care.

Join us as we take the annual pledge to Image Wisely in 2021. Together, we’ll put patient safety, health and welfare first, convey the principles of the Image Wisely program to our colleagues, communicate optimal patient imaging strategies, routinely review imaging protocols and monitor examination radiation dose indices.

Please visit the Image Wisely website to learn more and renew your commitment to radiation safety.
