SIS Leads Multi-Society Effort to Require Appropriate Training for Fluoro-Guided Procedures

Friday, October 18, 2019  

On October 14, 2019, SIS and eight U.S. medical societies provided comments to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) regarding their proposed regulations that would expand opportunities for advanced practice providers to perform procedures under fluoroscopic guidance. The multisociety letter emphasizes that fluoroscopy is not a distinct imaging modality separate from procedure performance and encourages CDPHE to ensure that individuals performing fluoroscopically-guided interventional spine procedures have obtained the requisite training to protect patients from avoidable clinical complications and poor outcomes.
