The attenuation required shall not be less than 0.25 mm lead equivalent.
(2) Equipment configuration when combined with procedures shall be such that no portion of any staff or ancillary individual's body, except the extremities, shall be exposed to the unattenuated scattered radiation emanating from above the tabletop unless that individual:

(b) The radiation has passed through not less than 0.25 mm lead equivalent material including, but not limited to, drapes, Bucky-slot cover, sliding or folding panel, or self-supporting curtains, in addition to any lead equivalency provided by the protective apron referred to in OAR 333-106-0025;
