Georgia remains one of only a few states that do not license medical imaging professionals. 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.
ASRT and the Georgia Society of Radiologic Technologists are working with the Department of Community Health and Department of Natural Resources to obtain regulatory changes for persons who perform medical imaging and radiation therapy procedures. Efforts to procure licensure for radiologist assistants continues in collaboration with the Georgia Composite Medical Board.
