RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.

"Emergency radiologists are on the front lines of patient care 24/7/365 and deliver value-based imaging in the emergency room (ER)," said Robert S. Pyatt Jr., M.D., FACR, chair of the ACR Commission on General, Small, Emergency and/or Rural Practice. "They are vital in the timely diagnosis and management of emergency patients from head to toe," he said.

"The International Day of Radiology celebrates the contributions that emergency radiologists make to the urgent diagnosis and care of critically ill and injured children and adults," said Mary C. Mahoney, M.D., RSNA Board Liaison for Publications and Communications. "Although we celebrate this Day of Radiology only once every year, emergency radiologists save lives every day," she added.

Patients are the primary focus of all radiologic care, which is highlighted through the RSNA Radiology Cares initiative and the ACR Commission on Patient- and Family-Centered Care. ACR and RSNA jointly sponsor RadiologyInfo.org, an online patient resource that explains medical imaging tests and treatments in detailed, easy-to-understand language. This resource helps patients understand and prepare for more than 230 imaging procedures, tests and treatments, and disease/conditions.
