Radiologist assistants.
Existing law provides for the certification and regulation of radiologic technologists by the State Department of Public Health. Existing law authorizes the department to adopt regulations to implement those provisions, as specified.
This bill would prohibit a person from holding themself out as a radiologist assistant unless the person meets specified requirements including examination and registration. The bill would prohibit a radiologist assistant from functioning in that capacity independent of a supervising radiologist and performing specified acts. The bill would make a violation of these provisions punishable by a fine not exceeding $5,000, imprisonment in a county jail for a period not exceeding one year, or by both that fine and imprisonment. By creating a new crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this act for a specified reason.
