At Millburn Medical Imaging, patient safety is our number one priority -- and that includes helping patients and their referring physicians manage their exposure to radiation for imaging exams. If you are scheduled to have a study that exposes you to radiation you can be confident that our radiation dose management protocols and our participation in two radiation safety programs ensures you will receive the lowest dose possible.
To help establish national protocols for medical radiation safety for adults, the American College of Radiology and the Radiological Society of North America initiated the Image Wisely program. The Image Wisely principles serve as radiation safety guidelines for participating imaging centers. For adult patients, MMI follows these guidelines, which were developed with input from the American Association of Physicists in Medicine and the American Society of Radiologic Technologists.
If your child needs an imaging procedure, it’s understandable that you might be concerned about radiation. At MMI, we want you to be aware that we share your concerns!
Although research shows that risks associated with medical radiation exposure are small and inconclusively proven, we believe that any possible risk should be taken seriously—especially with children. That is why MMI participates in the Image Gently program.
The Image Gently program was created by the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging, a group of radiologists, pediatricians, family practitioners, and other medical professionals dedicated to raising awareness that radiation doses in medical imaging can be lowered while still meeting the diagnostic needs of pediatric patients. Participating facilities pledge to:
When you bring your child to MMI, you can be confident that we make special provisions for their safety.
