In addition to the 80-Hour course, Limited Scope X-Ray Operators are required to complete a 3-hour course, which can be accessed on this website, or can be supplied by the Department via DVD or VHS tape.  The 80-hour course and this 3 hour training should be completed prior to beginning the clinical competence portion of the limited scope x-ray operator training requirements in the North Dakota Radiological Health Rules.  This training supplement addresses two critical areas of the limited scope x-ray operator training.  One area is the North Dakota Radiological Health Rules and Part 1 covers this information.  The second part covers special considerations involving pediatric x-rays.
