Licensed Radiographer - License Information

New Requirements for Radiographers/X-Ray Machine Operators

In 2010, a new law (2009 Wisconsin Act 106) was enacted which establishes licensing and permitting requirements for those who perform medical radiography or provide medical radiographic services.  The new law, which created Chapter 462 of the Wisconsin statutes, requires that any person who performs radiography or operates an X-ray machine or X-ray equipment, and is not exempt from the law, shall obtain a license or permit to perform radiography or limited scope radiographic procedures. 

A copy of the formal notice of the new requirement and answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) can be found by clicking on the links below.
