The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) now accepts online applications and payments for radiologic licenses. Applications are reviewed and approved within one to three days when received and paid for online versus two to three weeks if submitted through the mail.
ODH recently enhanced the security of the X-ray Licensure System (XLS). Users are required to create an account in the ODH Gateway in order to apply, renew, amend or check the status of an application or license in the XLS. The ODH Gateway provides added protection to personal information.
