Guidance and Recommendations for Health Care Facilities

Note: not all suggestions may be appropriate for a given facility. Most of the information in these documents can serve as best practice tips. Inspection requirements are indicated by the word “shall.”

X-Ray Inspection Reports and Scores

The Radiological Health Program works to protect the public from unnecessary exposure to radiation. Staff inspect x-ray instruments and license x-ray facilities.

X-ray inspection reports are summaries of all inspections conducted over one year. You can view data for all x-ray inspections, or data for specific facility types, such as dental, medical, chiropractic, podiatric, and veterinary facilities.
