State licensed technologists:
***Except where prohibited by state law or regulation, for initial and renewal accreditation, registered nuclear medicine technologists who have had appropriate training in CT with documentation as defined by the supervising physician at the site will be considered to be qualified to perform stand-alone CT and/or PET/CT exams. Registered CT technologists who have appropriate training in nuclear medicine are also considered qualified to do PET/CT. However, they are not considered qualified to perform stand-alone PET or other nuclear medicine studies. At the time of any site survey by the ACR, the site must provide documentation of training and experience.
The facility should not submit proof of certification and/or continuing education as part of the application for accreditation. Keep all documentation verifying that your personnel meet accreditation requirements on file at your facility. The information should be available upon request.
