On this webpage, the FDA is providing information about the use of cone-beam computed tomography in dentistry, particularly in the pediatric population, as well as information for patients, parents and health care providers to help reduce unnecessary radiation exposure from dental cone-beam computed tomography.
The Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging - the Image Gently Alliance - is a coalition of health care organizations dedicated to providing safe, high quality pediatric imaging worldwide. The primary objective of the Alliance is to raise awareness in the imaging community of the need to adjust radiation dose when imaging children. The ultimate goal of the Alliance is to change practice.
The Alliance chose to focus first on computed tomography (CT) scans. The dramatic increase in the number of pediatric CT scans performed in the United States in the past seven years and the rapid evolution, change, and availability of CT technology and equipment well justify this Alliance strategy. The campaign has grown to include: parent information, Fluoroscopy, Interventional Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, and Digital Radiography.
