X-Ray Compliance & Enforcement

​The RHB inspects, onsite or via a remote protocol, facilities housing X-ray equipment at the inspection frequencies specified in Health & Safety Code section 115085.  X-ray machines are prioritized pursuant to Title 17, California Code of Regulations section 30145.  Except for facilities housing mammography machines, a facility housing multiple prioritized machines will be inspected at the shortest inspection frequency.  For example, if a podiatrist office also possesses fluoroscopic X-ray equipment, all machines will be inspected at the 3-year average inspection cycle.  Mammography machines are always annually inspected regardless of other prioritized machine within the facility with the inspection limited to mammographic usage.  All other machines will be inspected at the frequency of the highest prioritized machine.

For additional information, contact the Radiologic Health Branch at (916) 327-5106.
