X-Ray Inspections
Share |

Effective January 1, 2014, it is again the responsibility of the owner of x-ray machines to provide for both initial and periodic inspection of x-ray machines, and to ensure radiation shielding is adequate, through use of MRCP-approved Qualified Experts (QEs) in radiation safety.

 

The MRCP maintains a list of Qualified Experts to come to your veterinary clinic and perform the required radiation equipment inspections. QE survey fees are not set or controlled by MRCP but by private arrangement between QE and facility. Type of equipment, numbers of machines and distance of travel for the QE may all factor into the cost.

Contact the MVMA at mvma@movma.org or 573-636-8612 if you would like a list of clinics in Missouri and there expiration dates.

 

Veterinary facility X-Ray machines normally must be inspected every four (4) years. However veterinary facilities that have completed a successful inspection can fill out this form to see if they qualify for a two-year extension. That is,  for their next inspection to recur in six (6) years instead of four. You may apply for an extension by going to this website http://health.mo.gov/safety/radprotection/appsforms.php and click on the Reduced Radiation Hazard Inspection Extension Form
