I have a question..I cannot find the answer anywhere! I work as a Nuc Med Tech at a hospital in Delaware. We were just told that they want us to help out in fluoroscopy. They want us to be trained and become proficient in fluoro, so they can pull us over there if we are needed.
My question is..Do we have to be certified to do this?? A Radiologist is required to run the machine..so I am not sure if it is a problem or not.

There is some requirements of a Nuc Med Tech to be actively present in certain medical procedures that involves real-time x-ray imaging with Fluoroscopy . However the procedure will be done by the interventional Radiologist like for example setting up an entrance port or a cath for instillation of the RRX .
When this is done , your participance is required to introduce the RRX ( as a licensed technologist)
The most commonly seen cases are Y-90 tagged microspheres for liver imaging ( to r/o hepatocellular carcinoma)
