More than 2,000 medical imaging providers have taken the Image Wisely™ pledge—launched on November 29, 2010—to optimize radiation dose used in medical imaging procedures on adult patients.

Image Wisely is an awareness program of the American College of Radiology, the Radiological Society of North America, the American Association of Physicists in Medicine, and the American Society of Radiologic Technologists. The program’s objective is to encourage practitioners to avoid unnecessary ionizing radiation scans and to use the lowest optimal radiation dose for necessary studies.
