Medical Reportable Events and
Other Medical Reports for X-Ray Machines

The Pennsylvania Code requires that a licensee or registrant possessing a radiation-producing machine report to the Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Radiation Protection, all medical reportable events that occur during therapeutic use of their radiation-producing machine. Other medical reports are also required when exposure to therapeutic or diagnostic use of a radiation-producing machine results in, or is the suspected cause of, an injury that was not an expected consequence when the procedure was started. This fact sheet is designed to help licensees and registrants to meet reporting deadlines.
