Stanford – Image Gently
Microsite for Image Gently
Through advocacy the Image Gently Campaign increases awareness at the frontlines of medical and dental imaging. The Image Gently Campaign develops educational materials that detail how radiologists can protect children from unnecessary radiation exposure. Because recent data suggests that preadolescents and adolescents are at increased risk of future malignancy from diagnostic imaging, the Image Gently Campaign educates healthcare practitioners on how to decrease radiation exposure in children. While diagnostic imaging is a necessary medical practice, Image Gently advocates methods that reduce unnecessary ionizing radiation. Ultimately, Image Gently is identifying opportunities for cancer prevention during preadolescents and adolescents. Since our team felt incredibly passionate about the Image Gently Campaign, we developed a robust microsite for the Image Gently Campaign.
