I am currently working as a Nuclear stress tech. I do 10 mibi test a day. I am wondering about the risk of exposure in pregnancy for me. Since I am a cardiology tech I do not wear a badge so I have no idea what I am exposed to. Should I be wearing a lead apron? I didn't want to inform my employer that I'm pregnant just yet. Any thoughts or suggestions?
