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.

- In 2014, Chiropractic license
renewal requires 24 hours of 'approved' continuing education (CE). 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 CA X-Ray Supervisor & Operator permit (XSOP).
- 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; and semi-monthly fixer retention and darkroom fog), 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 could also cite you for not having a small office radiation protection
program, also required by statute and a new trend. 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, and (3) train you
to do all of the QA testing properly. 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.
seminars offer FREE certificates & FREE duplicate certificates if you lose your original.
- We offer FREE LUNCH on site for attendees of 8 hours or more
at hotel seminars.
- There is easy freeway
access and FREE PARKING at all hotel seminars.
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 classroom, not internet or distance learning like a DVD or "online" course. DVD/Online courses 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.

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 citing offices that DO NOT have a comprehensive written radiation protection program suitable for a small office
in place. This applies to any small office with an x-ray machine (both digital and screen/film). This violation is based on
an old statute not previously enforced for small offices. I now have personal experience with both wet film processor, and
digital, offices getting this violation. I don't yet see a pattern as to why some offices get this violation, and some do
not. Please browse to Permits & Licensure to
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.
