X-rays pregnancy

  1. 0 Hi everyone, today while working a cysto case a doc took an image at the beginning of the case without asking if everyone was shielded. I was about 4-5 feet away, unshielded. It was a quick pic but I'm concerned for my unborn. Any thoughts?

    If it's a case that could potentially be using x-ray, have the lead on ahead of time. Easiest way to ensure that you're protected. Other than that, your question should be posed to your obstetrical care provider.
