The law requires registered radiologic technologists to hold a license to perform radiography imaging services. Those not registered must pass Wisconsin's limited scope of practice in radiography examination to receive their limited x-ray machine operator permit. The law also prohibits using diagnostic x-ray equipment on humans for diagnostic purposes without a prescription or order by a physician, dentist, podiatrist, chiropractor, advanced practice nurse prescriber, or physician assistant, the ASRT said.
As part of the law, Wisconsin created a seven-member radiography examining board that has regulatory authority to promulgate rules to establish licensure standards for radiography, according to the ASRT.
