X-Ray

An x-ray (radiograph) is a non-invasive procedure that produces digital images of the body. Diagnostic radiography uses a small amount of ionizing radiation to diagnose and treat medical conditions. X-rays are the most frequently used form of medical imaging.

What should I expect during my X-Ray?

How do I prepare for my X-Ray?

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.

How do I prepare for my X-Ray?

Most x-ray examinations require no preparation.  You may want to leave all jewelry at home and wear loose, comfortable clothing that has no buttons or snaps. In order to provide the radiologist with the best images, we may ask you to remove all metallic objects that are in the area of interest and have you change into a gown or patient scrubs.
