LMR's are not allowed to perform ultrasounds, MRI's or even special procedures (e.g. artery catherizations, kidneys etc.) Even though it's only 9... (11 replies)
... I wanted to add, that I got more info from a local college here (spencerian college that seems to be on all the radiography websites as the college in ky to get certified) that offers LMR training and certification.
