For Doctors Of Chiropractic



Our Mission:

To be vigilant of changing California laws regarding Chiropractic and x-ray, and notify doctors of possible consequences to their practices.

The state of diagnostic imaging today is complex and rapidly-evolving. We provide doctors with continuing education to satisfy California x-ray and Chiropractic recertification and relicensing requirements, sharpen diagnostic skills and better utilize diagnostic imaging in their practices.

Formal x-ray reports are a legal requirement for all radiographs taken of human beings. We offer Chiropractors x-ray interpretation by a Chiropractic radiologist for their analog and digital radiographs at bargain prices.

Highlights:

  • Annual Chiropractic license renewal requires 24 hours of 'approved' continuing education (CE); 6 hours of which must be in the 'mandatory' category.  Ten hours of 'approved' x-ray CE are required independently every two years by the California Department Of Public Health, Radiologic Health Branch (CDPH-RHB) to renew your CDPH-RHB Radiography X-Ray Supervisor & Operator permit (XSOP).  All of our Board Approved continuing education is usable for both.
  • If your office has a wet film processor, and you are not doing the daily and semi-monthly quality assurance (QA) testing required since October 2012 (ie. daily measuring and charting density difference, mid-density, base plus fog; quarterly fixer retention testing and bi-annual darkroom fog testing), the CDPH will absolutely issue you a violation during your next equipment inspection.  By your second inspection after the new regulation took effect, inspectors who were lenient the first time will now be harsh.  The inspector may also cite you for not having a small office radiation protection program, also required by statute.  I have a low-cost ($75) 5-hour workshop designed to: (1) show you where to get all necessary equipment at the lowest price, (2) get you all the forms and charts you need, (3) train you to do ALL of the QA testing properly, plus (4) give you a FREE radiation protection program for your office.  You will be in compliance of all CDPH regulations.  No doctor need be forced to remove x-ray from his or her office.  I still get weekly phone calls or emails from doctors who just got inspected, got cited for not doing the QA testing, and tell me they wish they would have taken care of this before, but time passed and they did nothing.
  • Our seminars offer FREE certificates & FREE duplicate certificates if you lose your original.
  • There is easy freeway access and FREE PARKING at all hotel seminars.
  • If you prefer taking courses on your computer, smartphone or other mobile device (eliminating all travel), our webinar attendees get x-ray hours faster and less expensively than any other Board approved method.  Webinars are classified by the BCE as live classroom; not distance learning like a CD/DVD or web-based course.  CD/DVD/Online courses allow time-shifting and require a test be taken, and are limited to 12 hours per year.  Webinars do not have these limitations.  Space is limited to 25 attendees, on a first come basis, so register early if you want this.
  • I offer a webinar-based 9 hour mature and effective prep course for doctors (MD, DO, DC, DPM) who must take the CDPH-RHB Radiography X-Ray Supervisor And Operator exam (see schedule in Dates & Pricing).

OLD IMPORTANT NEWS: 

The California Department Of Public Health (CDPH) passed new x-ray quality assurance (QA) regulations that took effect October 2012. If you have an x-ray machine in your office, and you use wet film processing, you are required to perform and record daily and semi-monthly QA testing. If you are not currently doing these QA tests, and keeping proper written records of the results, you are in violation of the new regulations and will be cited at your next CDPH equipment inspection (specifics on my 
Permits & Licensure page).
 
During routine equipment inspections, CDPH inspectors are now issuing violations to some small offices with x-ray machines that DO NOT have a comprehensive written radiation protection program suitable for a small office. This applies to both digital and screen/film offices. This violation is based on an old statute not previously enforced for small offices. I now have personal experience with both digital and screen/film offices getting this violation. Please browse to Permits & Licensure (3rd item down) to read more.
 
NEW continuing education requirements mandated by the CA BCE are posted on my Permits & Licensure page, along with current CDPH-RHB CE requirements to renew your CA XSOP.
 
 
NEW IMPORTANT NEWS: 

If you currently have analog (traditional film/screen) or digital x-ray equipment, and you treat Medicare patients, the following provision in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016 became law in December 2015. Beginning 2017, Medicare will reduce payments 20% for x-rays performed on analog systems. Beginning 2018, Medicare will reduce payments 7% for x-rays performed on CR equipment for the next five years, and 10% after that. This is an obvious bias away from analog and CR systems, and toward DR systems.
