Virginia Lifts Restrictions on NOMAD Handheld X-ray
Date:11/27/2013

OREM, Utah, Nov. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The State of Virginia recently announced that it will drop dosimeter requirements in favor of unrestricted use of the Aribex NOMAD® family of handheld X-ray systems, effective January 1, 2014.
