Editor’s Note

The Joint Commission on July 18 announced that it will implement several standards changes for fluoroscopy services in ambulatory care organizations, critical access hospitals, hospitals, and office-based surgery practices, effective January 1, 2019.

The revisions clarify expectations and address areas of risk with imaging, and they include a revision of required tests for computed tomography units and a new requirement for establishing a radiation safety officer.
