VSRT Advocates for the Profession

The Virginia Society of Radiologic Technologists supports and promotes the profession of radiologic sciences on behalf of allied health radiologic professionals and all patients in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Since 1949, VSRT has worked diligently to provide education, networking and to vigorously defend our profession and its high educational standards from potential intrusions that may lead to a decrease in image quality and safety for our patients and physicians. The Commonwealth of Virginia has a licensure law that requires non-hospital practitioners to obtain a license to operate ionizing, radiation-emitting equipment as well as other high science technologies.
