GSRT Advocates for R.T. Licensure

The Georgia Society of Radiologic Technologists continually works with stakeholders to enact licensure for medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals in the state.

The intent is to create the Georgia Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy Board. In addition, all individuals performing medical imaging and radiation therapy procedures would be required to obtain a license from the board.

Georgia remains one of only a few states that do not license medical imaging professionals, and current state regulations only require a minimum of six hours of radiation safety training. There are offices, urgent care centers, pain clinics, and other areas that employ untrained or undertrained personnel to operate x-ray, fluoroscopy, and advanced imaging modalities.

The state of Georgia requires all bills that create new professional or occupational licensure programs undergo a review by the Georgia Occupational Regulation Review Council before enactment; that process is underway.
