ten-day rule

A rule proposed by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) for women of reproductive age, that "whenever possible, one should confine the radiological examination of the lower abdomen and pelvis to the 10-day interval following the onset of menstruation", a precaution linked to the teratogenic effect of radiation, despite the low levels normally delivered in diagnostic imaging.

"Ten-Day Rule." For each student who receives special education services via an IEP under IDEA, federal law permits a school to "remove" (i.e., suspend) the student for up to 10 consecutive days for violating the school's code of conduct (so long as such discipline is consistent with the school's treatment of students without disabilities who have committed the same violation under analogous conditions).
