Image Gently campaign urges dental professionals to 'child-size' radiation dose
Image Gently Campaign via ADAA
The American Dental Assistants Association is joining the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging to help protect children from adult size radiation doses through the Image Gently Campaign. The Image Gently campaign has developed online educational and scientific materials to help dental professionals optimize radiation dose used in imaging exams performed on children. Image Gently has also produced downloadable materials to help parents ask more informed questions of their dental providers whenever scans are recommended for their children.
