Imaging Professional Pledge

Pledge for Imaging Professionals


I wish to optimize the use of radiation in imaging patients and thereby pledge:

  • To convey the principles of the Image Wisely® program to the imaging team to ensure that my facility prioritizes patients and safety through all aspects of medical imaging.
  • To put my patients' safety, health and welfare first by optimizing imaging examinations to use only the radiation necessary to produce diagnostic-quality images.
  • To communicate optimal patient imaging strategies to referring physicians, and to be available for consultation.
  • To routinely review imaging protocols to ensure that the least radiation necessary to acquire a diagnostic-quality image is used for each examination.
  • To monitor examination radiation dose indices to enable comparison to established diagnostic reference levels.
After you submit your pledge, look for the Image Wisely confirmation email containing a link to your pledge certificate. Check your spam folder if you don't receive the email.

Yes, I want to Image Wisely.
This is an annual pledge that will expire December 31. Pledge renewals begin January 1.
