    The Registration and Support Section within the Bureau of X-Ray Compliance is responsible for processing all requests for registration and associated fees for all facilities with x-ray equipment in New Jersey. In addition, this Section is responsible for assessing annual registration renewal fees and scheduling all x-ray facility inspections. Presents a clear explanation of simple equipment of the equipment and of the principles underlying its operation which will help students to make an efficient selection and subsequent use of apparatus. Need for safety in operation is stressed and proedures to test equipment performance are included. Ways of obtaining information by reference to data sheets and assessment reports are also 5/5(2).

    Like all other diagnostic imaging equipment, all MRI scanners in an accredited facility must have a performance evaluation at least annually, ensuring quality for parameters such as signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), image uniformity, magnetic field homogeneity, and high- . Diagnostic imaging personnel should wear a personnel dosimeter during routine operations in an imaging facility because the device provides: 1. An indication of an individuals working habits 2. An indication of working conditions in the facility 3. A way for the employer to determine whether radiation workers are actively engaged in.
