Pregnant patients

The “Pregnant Patients” guideline is currently under review. Recently, the CAMRT released the position statement regarding Discontinuing the Use of Gonadal and Fetal Shielding for Patients, and will follow-up with a review of BPGs to ensure concordance with the statement.


Radiation exposure to a fetus is kept as low as reasonably achievable

This BPG is under review and will be updated in the future. We recognize that the gendered language used in the BPG is out of date and does not reflect current patient-centred care standards inclusive of all genders and the ability to self-identify one’s gender. We ask for your patience as we work through the process of reviewing and obtaining stakeholder feedback. In the meantime, if interested, CAMRT offers four LGBTQ2S Quick Self Study CPD courses.
