Missouri R.T.s are encouraged to attend this event and speak to lawmakers about the important role qualified medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals play in patient care.

The Missouri Society of Radiologic Technologists is pleased to announce registration for the annual R.T. in J.C. event is open. The 2019 event will take place in at the Capitol in Jefferson City on Feb. 12 in Hearing Room (HR) 2.

Attendees will meet with state senators and representatives to promote licensure legislation for radiographers, radiation therapists, nuclear medicine technologists, limited x-ray machine operators and radiologist assistants.

The MoSRT expects a licensure bill to be introduced early in the 2019 legislative session and your help is needed to tell lawmakers about the vital role of radiologic technologists and why licensure is important for patient safety. Information will be posted here when available.
