SNM and Image GentlyTM launch initiative to standardize radiation dose in pediatric nuclear medicine
Date:10/12/2010

The Image Gently campaign encourages pediatric nuclear medicine specialists to download the new brochure from the Image Gently website (www.imagegently.org) and make it available to parents in waiting rooms and offices.

"We pediatric nuclear medicine practitioners are working together to standardize radiopharmaceutical doses so that physicians who do not work with children on a day-to-day basis will have an accessible resource that will aid them in dose reduction," said Michael J.

"This dose reduction effort reflects our commitment toward maximizing the benefits and minimizing possible risks to our patients."

"The Image Gently nuclear medicine brochure is a tremendous resource to parents about radiation risk and safety. A group of pediatric physicians in pediatric nuclear medicine from the Society for Pediatric Radiology and the SNM collaborated to ensure it emphasizes the importance of not only lowering dose, but lowering it effectively and tailoring it to each patient," said Marguerite T. Parisi, MD, MS, Chair of the Society for Pediatric Radiology Committee on Nuclear Medicine and Chief of PET/CT and Ultrasound at Seattle Children's Hospital.
