  • Investigate complaints and incidents of radiation overexposure and respond to radiological emergency incidents
  • Conduct inspections at locations that use radioisotopes to ensure that these radioisotopes are used, stored and disposed of in accordance with State and Federal regulations
  • Inspect mammography facilities for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and to determine compliance with State regulations
  • Revoke the license to use radioisotopes or registration of x-ray machines at any establishment after verifying unsafe conditions or procedures
  • Continue the growth and development of its staff through certified training courses, conferences and exposure to state-of-the-art equipment and technology
