Radiology technician qualifications state by state. Vary from, fogging mirror with your breath, to strict certifications...
No way for the public to know, and they are certainly not told.American Association of Radiology Technologists
Imaging touches nearly every patient and disease category at hospitals today and is a big part of the diagnostic process. And despite its critical role in the patient care continuum, radiology lags substantially behind other healthcare practices in terms of quality standards
2013 North Carolina is one of five states with no radiologic technologist licensure requirements, but Brenda Greenberg, RT(R)(CT), chair of the North Carolina Society of Radiologic Technologists (NCSRT) board of directors, intends to make a change.
Most of the larger North Carolina teaching hospitals have registered technologists on staff, a situation that Greenberg says is mostly due to reimbursement requirements.
“However, if you go to specialty clinics such as chiropractic, podiatry, or even dental offices, you don’t know if that person has a consistent educational background, or any clinical competencies whatsoever,” she says. “In many places, they have secretaries taking these images.”
2015, diagnosis huge problem, radiology huge problem... hodgepodge of qualifications for radiology healthcare providers~?
This is just intentional stupidity
