SNM is urging Congress to pass the Consistency, Accuracy, Responsibility, and Excellence in Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy Act. The bill would impose minimum education and credentialing standards for nuclear medicine technologists and Medicare certification standards for personnel overseeing medical imaging tests and radiation treatments. The bill would boost the safety and accuracy of medical tests, which in turn would improve patient care, SNM said.
