- The Nevada Society of Radiologic Technologists is pleased to announce Senator Joyce Woodhouse introduced Senate Bill 130 on Feb. 6. After minor technical amendments are adopted, SB 130 will create the Radiation Therapy and Radiologic Imaging Advisory Committee under the State Board of Health to issue licenses to radiographers, radiation therapists, nuclear medicine technologists, limited scope operators and radiologist assistants.
With the exception of mamography, Nevada is one of the few states with no practice standards in place for those who work with ionizing radiation. Working together, we can ensure that patients receive safe, high-quality imaging and therapy care from educated, certified and qualified technologists.

The Nevada Society of Radiologic Technologists has made a video explaining the importance of state licensing for those using medical ionizing radiation, for patient safety, and for quality imaging in Nevada.
