30 May: Madden Legislation To Streamline Licensure For Radiologic Technologists Gains Senate Approval

TRENTON – In an effort to address rapid changes in radiologic technology, Senator Fred H. Madden has sponsored legislation that would create a new licensing category to permit nuclear medicine technologists to operate hybrid fusion imaging technology – an effective method of detecting abnormalities in tissue and internal organs, and diagnosing many cancers. The bill cleared the full Senate today.

“Radiologic technology plays an integral role in diagnosing serious diseases, and it is essential that medical personnel are trained to utilize the most up-to-date technology,” said Senator Madden, D-Gloucester and Camden. “By establishing a comprehensive license for hybrid fusion imaging, this bill will streamline the licensing process for nuclear medicine technologists and ensure that patients receive complete and thorough examinations.”
