    The National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements has released this statement in support of the ending gonadal shielding:

    https://w3.aapm.org/cares/documents/NCRPStatementNo13.pdf

    ASRT has released this statement:

    https://www.asrt.org/main/news-publications/news/article/2021/01/12/asrt-statement-on-fetal-and-gonadal-shielding

    It is important to remember the MN Radiation Rules still require the use of lead shielding in current statue as written below: https://www.revisor.mn.gov/rules/4732.0510/

    4732.0510 Procedures and Safety Instruction for Facilities    Subp. 4. Gonad Protection

    Except for cases in which it would interfere with the diagnostic procedure, during radiographic procedures in which the gonads are in or within two inches (5cm) of the useful beam, gonad shielding of not less than 0.5 millimeters lead equivalence must be used for patients who have procreative potential.

    However, many sites do have rule variances that have already discontinued the use of patient gonadal lead shielding. 

    We will share updates as we get them!

    Be Safe,

    Jill
