Quality Assurance and General Information

Image Gently Campaign

During the summer of 2010, to support the National Health Objective, an educational package of information was distributed to 16,000 physicians in New York State to raise awareness of opportunities to lower radiation doses in the imaging of children. The New York State Health Department's Center for Environmental Health provided an informational page for the New York doctors to distribute to their patients regarding CT Imaging and radiation in general, dosimetry cards for children specifically to monitor radiation dose over their childhood, and an easy to read return card for further distribution of material.

We are experiencing issues which may delay billing. We are working to resolve these and thank you for your patience.
