The Board's Mission is to be the driving force behind the highest quality imaging and radiation safety standards in West Virginia through the licensure of educationally prepared and clinically competent professionals. The Board's Vision is to ensure public safety through a highly skilled and qualified workforce across the entire state of West Virginia providing quality imaging and radiation therapy services in every community and clinical setting.
