Image Gently and SNM; Go with the Guidelines!
The Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging and the Society for Nuclear Medicine announce the latest collaborative Image Gently message: Go with the Guidelines!
We encourage you to share the resources developed by the message committee, co-chaired by SPR members Drs. Ted Treves, Michael Gelfand and Meg Parisi, available on the newly-renovated Image gently website with your department and institutional colleagues.
A good place to begin? the full article and the poster with weight-based guidelines for administering radiopharmaceuticals for children for nuclear medicine tests.
Follow the new North American Consensus Guidelines for Pediatric Radiopharmaceutical Administered Doses. Visit the Image Gently Web site today and if you have not done so already, pledge to do your part to child-size the radiation dose used in children's imaging.
