Radiation Control

Radiology - X-Ray

All regulated radiation machines are required to be registered with Missouri Radiation Control Program (MRCP) upon installation and every two years thereafter. Radiation safety inspections are conducted at various periods depending on facility and imaging modality type, ranging from one to six years. Inspections are conducted either by DHSS staff or DHSS-approved Qualified Experts in radiation safety. For a comprehensive listing of Qualified Experts, click here.
