Welcome to RAD-AID International’s blog on international radiology development
RAD-AID International is a U.S. 501(c)3 nonprofit organization helping to bring safe, reliable, high-quality diagnostic and interventional radiology to the estimated 67% of the world population lacking these services. RAD-AID develops sustainable solutions guided by the objective needs of health care facilities “on the ground”. RAD-AID’s innovative Radiology Readiness™ approach is a 16-part analytical framework for understanding all the various clinical, technical, educational, financial, and other components needed to sustainably support radiology services in low-resource settings.
