Image Wisely™ Patient Safety
Radiologists at the University of Cincinnati agree to optimize the use of radiation in imaging adult patients and thereby
- To put their patients’ safety, health and welfare first by optimizing imaging examinations to use only the radiation
necessary to produce diagnostic quality images;
- To convey the principles of the Image Wisely™ campaign to the imaging team in order to ensure that their facility optimizes its use of radiation when imaging patients;
- To communicate optimal patient imaging strategies to referring physicians and to be available for consultation; and
- To routinely review imaging protocols to ensure that the least radiation necessary to acquire a diagnostic quality image is used for each examination.
Image Wisely™ is a collaboration of the American College of Radiology, Radiological Society of North America, American Society of Radiologic Technologists and American Association of Physicists in Medicine. 7678
