Radiologyinfo.org is a valuable, informative web site developed by physicians from the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR). It is well-organized and provides factual, readily understood information to people who want to know more about the benefits, possible side effects, and long term health implications of undergoing diagnostic procedures or treatments involving radiation.
RadiologyInfo’s Mission – RadiologyInfo™ is dedicated to being the trusted source of information for the public about radiology and the unique and vital role of radiologists in your healthcare.
There are numerous web sites and media campaigns that have been created by people or organizations whose mission seems to be spreading fear, uncertainty, doubt and mistrust. They discourage people from accepting effective, potentially life-saving advice and procedures from qualified medical professionals. They work hard to place scary stories in popular commercial media outlets.
If you have questions about any radiology topic or if you have friends and relatives that are asking questions because they have “read something, somewhere” that makes them worry about CT scans, x-rays, MRI, or any of dozens of specific procedures, a good way to know more so that you can fear less is to visit RadiologyInfo.org.
