The Oklahoma State Radiological Society (OSRS) was created in 1973 and since then has established and maintained the highest level of medical and ethical standards for providing input from every radiologist in our state. Through this means, we have the ability to influence policies and standards for all of radiology. Through its government relations division, the College has been profoundly instrumental in creating the positive relationship which now exists between the federal and state legislatures.
This has been made possible through the contribution of every member of the College. The strength of the influence which the ACR and the OSRS has with Congress and other government agencies, i.e., CMS, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, National Institutes of Health, FDA, etc., is directly related to the number of radiologists it represents.
