Five years ago the leaders of the world’s regional pediatric imaging societies launched the World Federation of Pediatric Imaging (WFPI), a pediatric imaging body with global overview. According to its mission statement "WFPI provides an international platform for pediatric radiology organizations united to address the challenges in global pediatric imaging training and the delivery of services". To guide WFPI's outreach endeavors as well as of other organizations interested in improving pediatric radiology services worldwide a project to better define the needs and gaps of pediatric radiologists and training centers worldwide was undertaken. The project aims to: -Establish the number of Pediatric Radiologists (as regionally defined) per country/region around the world -Outline the training pediatric radiologists receive and availability of training centers -Highlight major disparities and gaps in availability of pediatric radiologists and pediatric imaging training -Based on this information create a roadmap for WFPI’s global efforts.
