A medical radiologic technologist (“MRT”) is a health profession certified under Texas Occupations Code who, under the direction of a doctor, intentionally administers radiation to another person for a medical purpose.  The Board may deny or discipline a MRT for engaging in unprofessional conduct, including the violation of the standards of practice of radiologic technology established by the advisory board.  Tex. Occ. Code 601.302.  An emergency suspension may happen when the panel determines from the evidence or information presented to it that continued practice by the certificate holder would constitute a continuing threat to the public welfare.  Tex. Occ. Code 601.306.

On December 14, 2018, the Texas Board of Medical Radiologic Technology temporarily suspended the medical radiologic technologist license of Delroy Anthony Wilson, MRT. The suspension, which is effective immediately, was made after determining he poses a continuing threat to public welfare.  The Board panel found that Mr. Wilson was arrested by the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office for ongoing sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14, a felony.
