NIOSH-Certified B Reader Services

UW Health Radiology offers review of chest radiographs or CT scans for the presence of occupational lung disease.


Our staff includes a number of thoracic radiologists with expertise in digital imaging, High Resolution CT (HRCT) and interstitial lung disease, and active NIOSH B reader certification.


This certification is mandatory for physicians who classify chest radiographs for certain federal surveillance projects, such as the NIOSH Coal Workers' X-ray Surveillance Program, the Asbestos Medical Surveillance Program and industry-sponsored medical screening programs.
