There are various alliances in the world, both nationally and regionally, which advocate for the radiological protection of patients. However, until the creation of LATINSAFE no organization of this type existed in Latin America, nor in our languages (Spanish and Portuguese) .
Inspired by campaigns such as Image Gently and Image Wisely, among others, the goal of LATINSAFE is to promote the radiological protection of patients in Latin America following the ideas proposed by the “Call to Action of Bonn“.
LATINSAFE aims to promote the radiological protection of patients in Latin America and contribute to raise awareness about its importance among radiologists, prescribing doctors, technicians, patients and the general population.
Although the radiologists who are part of the executive committee of LATINSAFE are active members of other Latin American radiological associations, their participation in LATINSAFE is as individuals and not as representatives of other organizations. This happens in order to maintain the role and actions of LATINSAFE neutral and independent of other radiological organizations, national or regional.
