A Commitment to Patient Safety
The Deaconess Department of Radiology is accredited by the American College of Radiology for our safe imaging practices.
The lowest dose for your highest priority. Imaging for children is a special skill. As medical imaging capabilities continue to improve, we remain committed to using these powerful technologies safely and reducing patients’ exposure to radiation, especially for children. We know that not all children and adults should be x-rayed the same, We at Deaconess Radiology have signed the national pledge to Image Gently.
The Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging – the Image Gently Alliance®, is a coalition of health care organizations dedicated to providing safe, high quality pediatric imaging nationwide. The primary objective is to raise awareness in the imaging community of the need to adjust radiation dose when imaging children.
What is the commitment to Image Gently®? Recognizing that every member of the healthcare team plays a vital role in caring for the patient and wants to provide the best care. Learn more about Image Gently.

Make the image gently message a priority in staff communications
Review the protocol recommendations and, where necessary, implement adjustments to our processes
Respect and listen to suggestions from every member of the imaging team on ways to ensure changes are made
