Medical Radiography

Temporary Medical Radiographer
A student currently enrolled and participating in an educational program in medical radiography and has completed at least 12 months of that program.  Persons licensed as a temporary medical radiographer are permitted to perform the duties of a limited radiographer licensed in all anatomical categories.  These licenses expire 18 months from the date of issuance and are not renewable.

Limited Radiographer
An individual licensed as a limited radiographer may perform:

  • Medical radiography on limited regions of the human anatomy, using routine radiographic procedures, for interpretation by and under the direction of a licensed practitioner, excluding computed tomography, the use of contrast media, and the use of fluoroscopic or mammographic equipment; and/or
  • Bone Densitometry (this requires a separate examination).

Medical Radiographer 
An individual licensed as a medical radiographer may practice medical radiography on any part of the human anatomy for interpretation by and under the direction of a licensed practitioner, excluding interpretative fluoroscopic procedures.

Temporary Limited Computed Tomography Radiographer
A person registered by the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board or the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists in nuclear medicine technology may apply for a license as a temporary limited computed tomography radiographer. Temporary limited computed tomography radiographer licenses shall expire twenty-four months after issuance and shall not be renewed. Persons licensed as temporary limited computed tomography radiographers shall be permitted to perform medical radiography restricted to computed tomography while under the direct supervision and in the physical presence of licensed practitioners, medical radiographers, or limited computed tomography radiographers.

Limited Computed Tomography Radiographer
A person licensed as a limited computed tomography radiographer may practice medical radiography restricted to computed tomography. A nuclear medicine technologist may perform computed tomography without being licensed under the Medical Radiography Practice Act if such practice is limited to X-rays produced by a combination nuclear medicine-computed tomography system and administered as an integral part of a nuclear medicine procedure that uses a computed tomography protocol for purposes of attenuation correction and anatomical localization only and if the nuclear medicine technologist has received documented device-specific training on the combination nuclear medicine-computed tomography system.

Licensed practitioner
Licensed practitioner means a person licensed to practice medicine, dentistry, podiatry, chiropractic, osteopathic medicine and surgery, or as an osteopathic physician.
