Child Imaging Safety: Who & how
Click on the banner to reach the Image Gently/Alliance website
For the purposes of child imaging safety, WFPI aims to secure communication and collaboration between pediatric imaging practitioners via organizations advocating for appropriate practices and resource allocation for children.
To this end, WFPI is a partner of the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging and an active participant in the Image Gently campaign, helping to build a framework for addressing international child imaging safety needs. This partnership serves to underscore the synergies of the Image Gently Alliance, WFPI and their wider networks, define individual organizational roles, and promote efficient and effective use of resources for improved imaging healthcare for children.
WFPI therefore seeks to:
- support and enhance the Image Gently Alliance and the work of other societies and agencies throughout the world in the goal of promoting radiation protection for children worldwide
- ensure WFPI's international reach extends to the Alliance and secure the Alliance's input into WFPI focus areas such as radiation safety and region-specific recommendations on radiation protection for children.
