The bottom line for lead
Although lead exemption may be on the industry’s to-do list, it doesn’t rank high on it. In fact, some experts believe lead utilization in medical shielding may increase in certain areas.

“We would expect to see a growth in the use of cancer treatment centers involving high levels of lead shielding,” says Robert Wardley, chairman of Wardray Premise Ltd. So the wait will continue to see where lead’s path leads.
