Could your workflow be improved by allowing your PAs or nurses operate your MiniCAT?

There are proposed revisions to the IAC CT Accreditation standards that will allow non-physician personnel (including PAs, Nurses, etc.) to operate CT scanners as a Technical Staff member, as long as the following criteria is met:

  • Documentation allowing operation of CT equipment per state regulations.
  • Received a minimum of three hours of documented specific training in radiation safety provided by a medical physicist or qualified expert and received a 100% score on a written examination administered by the provider of the radiation safety training program. This documentation must be submitted.
  • Received a minimum of four hours of documented, specific training in the operation of the scanner. This documentation must be submitted.
  • Three months of clinical experience performing volume or cone beam CT examinations under the supervision of a qualified physician.
  • A minimum of 50 clinical examinations performed.
  • A letter from the current Medical Director or Technical Director verifying the training, experience, and competency specific to the operation of the volume or cone beam CT scanner.

If you support this revision, please visit to provide comments on the proposed standards. In order to provide comments, the IAC Comment Form must be completed and submitted electronically by the provided deadline. Comments can only be made until June 15, 2014, so please act quickly! 

At the close of the comment period, the IAC CT Board of Directors will review any submitted comments, consider modifications as needed and vote for final approval of the standards.

Please note: These changes are dependent upon individual state regulations. For questions about your specific state requirements, please contact Rachel Gajda at or 734-418-5168.
