AGREEMENT STATE REPORT - DOSE TO EMBRYO/FETUS

The following information was provided by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts via fax:

"On July 15, 2011, a female patient received a diagnostic scan and was administered 22 mCi of Tc-MDP. Before the CT scan and contrast administration, the patient signed a declaration that she was not pregnant. The RSO informed [the Commonwealth of Massachusetts representative] that it is Lahey's policy to have the patient sign an attestation to knowledge of pregnancy before the diagnostic scans, and they only do pregnancy tests before therapeutic administrations.

"On July 28, 2011, the patient notified the Lahey Clinic that she was pregnant at the time of the scan. The RSO, following the ANSI standard, calculated the dose to the fetus due to the radioactive materials was .506 rads. The total body burden from the CT scan was 2.1 rads. They used the conservative estimate that the embryo/fetus received all 2.1 rads making the total dose to the embryo/fetus 2.6 rads."
