Legislative Efforts

Federal Legislative Initiatives

At the federal level, the ASRT supports bills designed to protect radiologic technologists, enhance patient safety and ensure appropriate reimbursement for medical imaging and radiation therapy services. In addition, if any federal bills are introduced and include licensure or scope of practice parameters for medical imaging or radiation therapy professionals, we carefully review the language to determine if it is in the best interest of radiologic technologists and patient care. We also serve as a resource for governmental agencies seeking information about medical imaging and radiation therapy, and we speak on behalf of the radiologic technology community at hearings, briefings and on task forces and committees.
