What should I expect during my X-Ray?

A registered technologist will position you so that the body part we are imaging is in the proper field of view.  You may be standing or sitting depending on the anatomy of interest.  It will be important that you remain very still and follow any breathing instructions that the technologist gives you.

Once you are positioned, the technologist will step behind a glass window to take the exposure. You will hear the machine make the exposure but you should remain very still until the technologist informs you that it is okay to move freely.  Generally, two or three images will be taken.
