Idaho has no licensing standards for people who perform radiologic procedures, but a measure under consideration would change that. Lawmakers have introduced a bill that would require radiologic technologists to obtain a license to perform clinical imaging and radiation therapy services. The measure is waiting for a hearing in the Idaho Senate Committee on Health and Welfare. The bill, if approved, would lead to the establishment of a state Board of Radiologic Imaging and Radiation Therapy Examiners. Licensing standards will cover various fields, including nuclear medicine.
