Radiation use in diagnostic imaging in children: approaching the value of the pediatric radiology community.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

Medical imaging is foundational in the care of children, and much of the medical imaging province depends on ionizing radiation: radiography, fluoroscopy, CT and nuclear imaging. Many considerations for this imaging in children are distinct in the domains of appropriate radiation use, other factors that determine examination quality, the opportunities to engage and educate through networking, and the translation of research efforts. Given these needs, it is worth approaching the contributions and their impact by the pediatric radiology community, especially to the enhancement of this value in the care of children.
