If you are using fluoroscopy in Colorado you must apply to the Colorado Department of Public Health (CDPHE) - Radiation Control for certification. This is required starting in 2021, whether you're pushing the button or supervising a radiation technologist. 

For those who obtained a waiver from the state you must complete the R50 only( form below) and put in bold letters that you already have a waiver from the state. 
If you do not have a state waiver you must:
