Recently the Bureau of Radiation Protection has been contacted regarding the use of x-rays in human research. Be aware that the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) does not allow for any person to be “exposed to the useful beam except the patient for dental or medical radiologic procedures and unless such exposure has been authorized by a licensed practitioner within his or her scope of practice.” SeeOAC rule 3701:1-66-02(B)

Questions regarding rule 3701:1-66-02 or the prohibition of exposing a person to x-rays within authorization from a licensed practitioner should be directed to This email address is being protected from spambots.
