Referring Practitioner Pledge

Pledge for Referring Practitioners

owl

I have reviewed the Image Wisely webpage for Referring Practitioners and pledge to the following:

  1. I will educate myself regarding the relative radiation exposures for the various imaging exams which use ionizing radiation (plain X-rays, fluoroscopic studies, CT scans, and nuclear medicine studies). In my practice, I will balance the medical benefit to my patients for any of these imaging exams I order against any potential radiation risk associated with that exam.
  2. I will consult, as needed, with professionals specializing in medical imaging (radiology, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging) in order to choose the most appropriate imaging examinations for my patients.

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

 

Image Wisely encourages practitioners to optimize the amount of radiation used in
medically necessary imaging studies and to eliminate unnecessary procedures
