Tell Missouri state lawmakers to become a cosponsor and show Missouri patients they care about their health.

 

Senate Bill 303, introduced on Jan. 24 in the Missouri Senate, would create a Missouri Radiologic Imaging and Radiation Therapy Advisory Committee under the state Board of Registration for the Healing Arts. The committee would establish education and certification licensure standards for medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals in the state. The bill is sponsored by Sen. Jeanie Riddle, Chairwoman of the Committee on Professional Registration. Your help is needed to tell lawmakers about the vital role of radiologic technologists and why licensure is important for patient safety. Rep.Kathy Swan introduced the companion bill House Bill 884 in the Missouri House on Feb. 11. 

The Missouri Society of Radiologic Technologists is pleased to announce the annual R.T. in J.C. event was a success. The 2019 event took place at the Capitol in Jefferson City on Feb. 12. Attendees met with state senators and representatives to promote licensure legislation for radiographers, radiation therapists, nuclear medicine technologists, limited x-ray machine operators and radiologist assistants.

Missouri is one of only four states in the nation with no licensure or regulatory standards for personnel operating medical imaging and radiation therapy equipment.
