Rad Idea: Putting Patients First Program

For the past 13 years Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. has partnered with AHRA in support of the Putting Patients First program, awarding more than 70 grants dedicated to improving patient care and developing best imaging practices in the areas of CT, MR, ultrasound, X-ray and vascular. This collaboration seeks to improve patient care, safety and cybersecurity in imaging through grants that fund programs, trainings and seminars at IDN/hospital systems, local hospitals and imaging centers. 

This year, five grants will be awarded according to the following categories: 

Three grants of up to $10,000 each will be awarded to single-site hospitals and imaging centers. The three grants will include one focusing on diagnostic imaging, one focusing on pediatric imaging and one focusing on oncology imaging. There will be one grant up to $4,250 for a single-site hospital or imaging center on sonography imaging. One grant up to $20,000 will be awarded for projects that improve overall patient care and safety in imaging implemented across the IDN/hospital system. 

In total, the AHRA website states that more than $50,000 in grant money will be awarded “which we think is a marvelous way to honor AHRA’s 50th year of helping to put patients first!” 

Beyond receiving funds, the grant recipients will publish an article in an AHRA publication about their innovative program to improve patient care and safety in diagnostic imaging. 

The Putting Patients First program applies to USA residents only and the submission deadline is November 7, 2022. •
