Licensure requirements are for only those individuals PERFORMING imaging (this includes “panning” and activation of fluoroscopy) is considered performing medical imaging. If you are NOT “panning” or activating fluoroscopy you do not need to be licensed in ND. –The Board realizes that each facility has its own policies of whom may performing imaging in the cath lab, but ND state law is clear, if performing imaging you must be licensed.
